Club night on the 27th March saw us try a studio night.
Club Chairman, Garry, brought his studio gear down to the Settlement and set up a black background against which we could shoot a model using three studio lights.
Garry had invited Laura, from the Hertfordshire University Sirens Cheerleaders, to be our model for the night.
Garry demonstrated a number of techniques and showed how it was possible to get several different looks by keeping the lights in the same place and at the same settings and simply varying the position of the model and photographer.
After demonstrating how to get a working exposure, the club members were set loose on photographing the model.
Laura was great, maintaining a cheery smile throughout, despite having to pose for close on two hours solid for a number of different photographers. Some of those taking part had never taken shots under studio conditions and everyone said how much they enjoyed the evening, including Laura.
Nore studio nights have been put into the programme for the 2014/15 season.
Here are some examples of the shots we took on the night.
