Peoria Fencing Academy has given us permission to come in and photograph one of their adult classes (ages 14+). They will be in full fencing gear, masks, swords, etc. and we will be able to photograph the class in action as well as set up a background and lights for posed shots. Their class is from 7-8pm at their facility just off Pioneer Pkwy.
I will be bringing studio gear as usual, but the gym at their facility is fairly well-lit so available light shots will be possible as well. Feel free to bring your own lights if you want (a speedlight doesn't hurt, overhead gym light is not the most flattering), otherwise I will be happy to hand off the Skyport trigger for my strobes to whoever wants to try.
They are interested in putting some fencing photos up in their lobby area, so there is a good chance your work will be displayed. If you don't know of Peoria Fencing Academy, they're great there... the head coach was on the Egyptian National Fencing Team and all the coaches are very nice, it should be a fun shoot!
Feel free to check out their website for a glimpse at what and where we'll be shooting: http://www.peoriafencing.com
I'll plan to get there at 6:30pm with gear if anyone is able to help unload.
Hope you can make it!
