Delegate Showcase – Wendy Monaghan and Building a Portfolio. Each month we showcase a delegate who has attended our Welshot events and for February 2024 it’s the turn of Wendy Monaghan. Wendy has been taking photos her whole life, much to the dismay of her family and friends. Wendy mainly used point and shoot cameras and took her rolls of film into the local Max Spielman, or sent the roll off to be developed (remember the Kodak envelopes you could pick up to send your film off, should you get a second set of prints or not…) where you also had negatives delivered with your images.  Wendy remembers picking the pictures she wanted duplicates of, going through the negatives and either sending them off again or taking them to the local shop.

The key to successful coloured gel photography is experimentation and at this Welshot Photographic Academy Evening in Llandudno you will have the time to test different combinations, understand the impact of each gel, and refine your technique to achieve the desired results.  With the help, support and guidance of our team of expert lighting technicians and photographers you will be shown how understanding the colour temperature of your light source is crucial when using gels. Different gels have specific colour temperatures, and combining them with the existing lighting conditions can produce unique effects.
