            Urban Portraits in London


            My urban portraits with Speedlight’s are one of my most popular workshops running, showing you how to create amazing shots on the bustling streets of London with just 1 Speedlight or even a video light and a little bit of imagination.

            The workshop had 7 of us starting at the Tate and covering 5 locations. We had lots of coffee on the way to keep us and the model (Anna) warm. The shots below are from the day with some straight out of the camera with no editing, and others with a small amount of retouching.

            At the end of our day, everyone took some new tips and trick’s away with them. Along with knowing a bit more about Speedlight’s. With understanding how to control them from the camera no matter what the make of light.

            The ‘urban portraits’ session on the 6th was great and I learned a lot, not just about the tech stuff but, following your example, and engaging in an open, friendly manner with the model (and us ‘apprentices’): it was amazing to see just what Anna could do to make an image ‘work’.
            PS the video-continous lighting tips are really useful; yes I got one!

            Thanks Pat, Glad all the tips was useful for you and feel free to ask for more along the way!

            Was great having you along and look forward to next time, now time to practise with your new light, enjoy
