Following the success of my previous workshops in Bangkok, Malaysia and Singapore, I'm returning to offer this workshop for a 4th time in Bangkok - only this time I have 2 special guest celebrity models. These talented Thai actors also happen to be a lovely couple and excited to participate in this workshop.
May I present Alex Rendell and Toey Jarinporn Joonkiat. Having success on Thai TV is one thing but how will they do on this low light workshop? Well come join and find out. We will be shooting the couple together and separately, focusing on a combination of carefully planned composition and great low light lighting to create dramatic imagery. This is the first of it's kind workshop and the first time I'm using two actors together.
Previous workshops have also included the use of Thai actors including Katreeya and Charm. By using actors, the pictures become cinematic in nature due to the actors' ability to pose in the moment, compared to modelling as you'd normally see in typical workshops. Students are motivated to work together as a team and share shooting positions fairly, while being coached by myself along the way, ensuring great pictures while learning the art of mastering low light.
Shooting in low light can be a daunting task, and this workshop simplifies the process while ensuring the highest quality results are achieved. While some think that mastering low light is about shooting with fast apertures at high ISO, my workshops prove that there is much more to it. This workshop is also the only one of it's kind, where most night time photography workshops focus on cityscapes with tripod.
The workshop focuses on enhancing your skills to be able to deal with shooting in low light in any situation 'without' a tripod and with amazing results, and instilling confidence in your ability to work in any lighting condition.
The course starts off with a 1.5 hour tutorial on all the intricacies of working in low light, and provides a deep insight into the problems and solutions associated with this area. The three main topics cover dealing with ambient light, adding light, and subtracting light, using LED and flash.
This is followed by a practical shooting experience using ambient and LED with the goal of achieving pictures that look dramatic, yet natural. Following the shoot, we then go back and inspect/critique the results together, or on the following day, based on time and preference. This part if crucial for further development. If not suitable this can be done by email or Skype correspondence at no further cost.
While we work with a professional model during the workshop, the aim is to help you develop skills that you can apply in every day photography of friends, family and your chosen creative subjects. You'll learn how to pose a subject to existing light, or add/subtract light to suit a pose or situation - all very valuable tools you'll need to get to the next level.
As a coach my personal aim is to have you walk away with a new understanding and skill set that propels your photography to the next level, and the workshop is followed up with continued communication to ensure this.
This workshop will be conducted in Bangkok on Monday January 26 from 6pm-11pm.
Workshop fee: 10,000 baht. There is only a small limited amount of positions so book in fast to avoid missing out.
