This week we had a practical evening with 2 lovely models - Amy and Lucy, who had kindly agreed to come and take part in our practical portrait session.
We had 3 backdrop settings, black, white and a lit interior building, provided by Sue, Jo and Nicky Rhodes, along with a selection of studio lighting and equipment to enable us to work without the need for tripods and flashguns.
The models, although not professional, were very enthusiastic and engaged fantastically with us, even endangering life and limb by posing on the sun bed, which had been road tested by Sue earlier, with dramatic effect! All of which contributed to a really fun evening, with us all jostling for space, spreadeagled across the floor and in all sorts of positions to get that perfect shot.
Whilst the models were having a well earned break, Andy, a wannabe male model, took to the stage, or rather the sun bed, with a number of interesting facial poses, which got us all clicking (those of us who weren’t laughing too much anyway)! Thankfully the real models returned and we had some lovely mother and daughter poses. We ended the photo shoot with Alan joining the ladies to reenact the iconic Charlie’s Angels pose. Thanks to everyone who took part in this lively and entertaining evening.
Next week we have the results of our Round 1 PDI Competition, judged by Roy Thomas - good luck to everyone who has entered.
