karohemd: self portrait (photo 85mm)
[personal profile] karohemd
On Sunday I took part in an alternative fashion photography workshop run by Allan Amato at 4 Princelet St., an amazing Edwardian house.

The morning consisted of a demonstration of various lighting techniques (fill lights, key lights, one, two or three sources, with/without additional reflectors/diffusers etc.).
In the afternoon we split into three groups, each picking a room with a different lighting setup first rotating models, then rotating photographers so everyone got to shoot with everyone in each setup. The venue is absolutely amazing with a large number of rooms, many of them with big windows, creaky floorboards, even creakier stairs and lots of really old furniture and paraphernalia.

The models were fantastic, too, all with different styles and personalities: Nina Kate, Ulorin Vex and Viktoria Modesta.

Equally different were the attending photographers, reaching from photography student to older than me and both amateurs, semi-pros and pros. I got along really well with everyone and we already vaguely planned a group outing to Houghton House (if/when we're doing it, I'll be asking for people to model for me so keep your eyes peeled).

And last but not least, Allan Amato was cool, too. Nice guy, happy to answer questions and give suggestions. Definitely someone I wouldn't mind getting to know better over a couple of pints.

Let's start with Nina Kate:

She is and so are the other two models. Get yourself some latex, then. ;o)
Thank you!

Haha, I don't really like latex :p I think it's unflattering (on me), uncomfortable and way too much hassle! And you can only wear it to like, clubs where you don't really dance, where all the rich posers go. I'll pass :p

Same here. Some designs are cool to look at but I wouldn't want to wear it. I@m getting sweaty enough in breathable fabrics...

Yeah, I have latex gloves but that's about it. I don't wear latex for the same reason that I don't wear heels :)

Nice tats, nice sets, but only the outfit in the first one works for me. I just don't dig da rubbery stuff.

I do mean it with those tats though. Very nice. They came out well in the images as well :)

Thanks! I'm just a bit miffed I didn't spot her hair moving into her cleavage in the standing up shot as it's covering the central tattoo.

I see your point. It's captured well in the 3rd of the first 3 though. Nice arm stance as well :)
