Mains Studio Flash Photography – Anglesey Academy Evening

What Will Happen

Welshot Does… Downton Abbey at Christmas. Mains studio flash photography, stunning models, authentic costumes from the Cambria Costume House and some pretty cool backdrops (both studio and on location) and you’ve got yourself a great night of portraiture photography at the last Welshot Photographic Academy Evening on Anglesey for 2021. Tonight, you will learn how precision, where to place the light, and how it falls on your subject can dramatically affect the look of your image.

You will be working with models in authentic period costumes and by learning how to use props, how to work and pose your models, as well as mastering the lighting techniques you will be shown you will be able to make images which tell a story.

Images to advertise this event were all taken by Welshot Academy Members at the Welshot Does… Downton Abbey event in 2019 – Read the blog here.
