Lighting At The Old Bakery

You may remember a little while ago I attended a Ballet Workshop at the Old Bakery Photographic Studios in Poole, last week I was invited back to attend another workshop.

This time it was more technical, Richard, with his cheeky grin simply said: “Here’s the lighting equipment, go play”.

As photographers are regularly referred to as “light-chasers” this is always fun, creating shadows, colours, soft and harsh light, changing the atmosphere from light and airy to dark and dramatic.

That evening though, I decided to keep things simple and perfect a classic set up which is perfect for dramatic headshots. Our amazing model Kristina was happy to oblige and kept us laughing as photographers buzzed around her.

As you can see, sometimes keeping things simple can create beautiful results.


Although I totally confess, I did try out the red spotlight.
