We set off to the stunning Danesfield House Hotel & Spa located in Marlow for part two of our very popular wedding business workshop, with this event concentrating on Bride and Groom portraits using off camera flash “SpeedLights” for dramatic lighting.

We started the day with a 30min talk on LightBlue Software, a studio management tool for organising your photography business on the day to day running. The fun didn’t stop there with us arranging One Vision to showcase all their products from fine art printing to wedding albums and online proofing.

At 11am it was time for the first shoot with natural light. Using the soft edge of light from the doorways worked a treat before we started to add reflectors to sofen the shadows.

Before long it was time to get the flash out and my time to shine with my all time favourite bit of kit, the Profoto B2 battery pack and twin light kit. For today we will only be using a one light setup but as we move outside we will be using the sun as a secondery light source.

The day was a massive success as we covered all the portraits, not to mention a live edit in Lightroom and Photoshop with the grand master himself Gavin Hoey.

Big thank you to Danesfield House Hotel & Spa and Olympus UK for all their support on the day, and Dave from Artistic Motion for all the filming.
