Announcing a new Meetup for Wellington Photography Meetup Group!

What: Day in the Studio

When: Saturday, November 13,[masked]:30 AM

Price: $100.00 per person

Where: Photospace Studio
1st Floor 37 Courtney Place

After the meeting with James at Photospace at the interest expressed by people already, I have been booked the studio for a session on Saturday November 13 which will run from 9.00am to 4.00pm and be taken by Iris Kauffeld (a professional photographer with some 30 years experience).

Iris works almost exclusively in film so she really knows how to set lights where you cannot simply rely on the trial & error basis that we can today with digital.

All going well we will set up one camera with tethered shooting so it will mean that everyone will be able to see the results as they are taken.

In order to ensure that everyone has a good value for money, the workshop is limited to 10 people maximum and will be based on a first come, first served basis, and this will be on the basis of payment of the course fee, and not simply on the basis of an RSVP to the website here. I have 3 people already confirmed outside of the meetup group.

I have set a fee of $100 for the day. It is not the intention to make any money out of the day and if the actual expenditure for the day ends up being less, then the balance will be refunded. If you cancel out then the full fee will only be refunded should we be able to fill the slot left. Sorry if this sounds hard but this is not a money making venture and it is my pocket that will have to fill the gap.
We are organising for a number of models to be present on the day so you will not be expected to shoot each other. We are also organising for make-up artists as well, so you will be able to experience what a proper studio session is like.

Hopefully the models will be of different ages so you will be able to learn how you have to deploy the same light in different ways to bring out the best in your subject. Also you will learn how the lighting changes when dealing with more than one subject at a time.

We will also structure the day so that we will start with very simple lighting arrangements (one light and a reflector) so this will be something that anyone will be able to recreate using an off camera flash.

I will email my bank account details to all those that RSVP to the event online. The closing date for payments will be October 22 (but I suspect that it will fill up way before then).
