Learn how to create stunning beauty images

About the event

Attend this 4 hour workshop if you'd like to learn how to create high-end beauty images.

Working closely with a professional make-up artist and experienced model we will produce a 3 look beauty editorial - like you would see in a glossy fashion magazine.

Using studio strobes with a variety of modifiers to carefully control the lighting, I'll demonstrate how to use highlights and shadows to create form and emphasise areas of interest.

I'll explain everything from the initial concept development and equipment choices through to the final image selection and post-processing.

You'll also be given plenty of opportunities to photograph our model, so don't forget to bring your camera and memory cards!
