Peter Coulson Studio Lighting Masterclass

Peter Coulson Studio Techniques Masterclass

IMG_6273-fb960

I recently had the opportunity to attend Peter Coulson's recent Studio Techniques Masterclass in his studio in Melbourne. It was a pleasure to work with Natascha Verkaik again in Peter's personal studio environment. Peter once again covered many aspects of his photography; including how you can effectively use different light modifiers and manipulate the position of the light direction. He demonstrated how you can use softboxes, beauty dishes and a large parabolic umbrella effectively within the studio environment.

Here is a selection of my images from the day.

I recently had the opportunity to attend Peter Coulson's recent Natural Light Masterclass in Brisbane. It was a pleasure to work with Natascha Verkaik as we walked through the Brisbane Botanical Gardens. Peter covered many aspects of how to properly shoot and select a suitable location when shooting natural light; how to use natural reflectors and how to meter for shadows and highlights.

Here is a selection of my images from the day.
