Join successful portrait photographer Mark Strachan for a day of creative photography using only the light that nature supplies.
Available light photography is one of the most popular forms of photography at the moment because it allows the flexibility and spontaneity than can sometimes be lost if you have to carry around lighting equipment. Mark will demonstrate his methods of seeing and using available light to create stunning portraits using no more gear than an single lens, and of course a creative eye.
It’s all about seeing what the light is doing in a particular spot. How it falls across a face, how shadows define shape, how moving just a few inches can transform the quality of light from horrible to awesome. ‘Seeing the light’ is not intuitive but it can be learned, and so Mark will mentor a small group in building up an understanding of how to become more sensitive to available light and thus create stronger images.
