Improve your Photography Skills!

We have a couple of classes coming up at Loud and Flashy in Ashington to help improve your photography!

The first is a Studio Lighting class aimed at complete novices as well as those that have grasped the basics of lighting but want to take it further.

We'll cover how lighting works and explain the 'inverse square' rule in simple, hands-on terms!

We'll show you which modifiers to use including umbrellas, soft boxes, snoots and beauty dishes as well as when to use grids.

You'll be shown how to pose a model and taught the essential portrait lighting techniques such as loop, split, butterfly and Rembrandt, as well as when to use broad or short lighting.

We'll cover simple 1 light setups through to 4 lights.

The class runs for 3 hours and includes refreshments and course notes.

Wednesday 12th November, 7-10pm.  £25 per person.

The second class we are running is for Photoshop  

This is again aimed at those just starting to use the software as well as those that have used it for a while, but now want to get more creative.

You'll learn:
Why 'layers' and 'masks' are important.
How to crop and re-size images.
Blemish removal and skin softening.
Body shaping.
Split toning.
Cleaning up backgrounds.
And More!

The class runs for 3 hours and includes refreshments.
Bring a laptop with Photoshop running on it!

Horsing around!

Today's model in the studio had a rather long face!

But they weren't upset!

As the largest portrait studio in the north east we're used to catering for large family groups and we also shoot a lot of pet photography. But as large pets go, today's was the biggest we've had in the studio in Ashington so far!

Meet Flite and her owner Louise.

Louise and her mum had been in for a portrait a few weeks ago and mentioned that she'd like a portrait of her horse. We aim to please, so obviously told her to bring Flite along when she came to pick up her photos from the first session.

We're pleased to say Flite behaved perfectly and left no mess other than some bits of carrot.

The session lasted about an hour and we took about 250 photos for Louise to choose from. She's already decided she wants a large canvas of her favourite image.

If you'd like a portrait session with your pet get in touch. We really can shoot anything at our studio!
