Featured Seminar - Off-Camera Lighting Made Simple -
Richard P Walton
Wednesday 17 October 2012 - Farington Lodge Hotel, Preston
A day devoted to lighting and selling dramatic wedding and portrait images.
As photographers we are governed by certain rules, although with new technology things have loosened up a bit we still have to stick to what is viable in the situation we are in. As we abide by these technical rules I feel we are also governed by another set of rules that we seem to have created ourselves, as professionals we feel the need to live up to what's expected of us as photographers and not what we are capable of as artists and individuals. This is something that has really got me thinking recently and had a big effect on the way I now run my photography business.
