Beauty and Fashion Photography Workshop

At Saracen House Studio, we're proud to work with renowned photographer and trainer, Andrew Appleton to provide first class photography training in Milton Keynes.  Our range of workshops, tuition and photography days offer knowledge on a wide range of topics.

If you are confident with studio lighting, the Beauty and Fashion workshop is one of the best and most enjoyable ways to develop your skill set. For this reason, it is an ideal follow-on from the Mastering Studio Lighting skills workshops. The day’s packed schedule will give you a chance to get a range of beauty and fashion lighting set-ups under your belt so that you can produce successful images which work on both creative and technical levels.  We'll be working with a professional Make Up Artist during the day too, where you'll learn some handy tips on working with a team to get the most out of your shoot.

Appleton Photo Training Beauty and Fashion Photography Workshop at Saracen House Studio Milton Keynes

This is a hands-on workshop with classroom sessions in the morning and practical photo shoots in the afternoon. During the classroom sessions, we work together on de-constructing lighting in a number of images so that you can replicate certain styles. We cover several fashion and beauty lighting set-ups, using a ring flash, coloured gels and reflectors, and the manipulation of white balance to create drama and interest. Depending on time, we will complete 2 to 3 different fashion lighting set-ups.

Because every photographic shoot is a production, we outline an approach to managing a beauty and fashion shoot successfully. Along the way, you will pick up tips on working with models, make-up artists and stylists, with ample opportunity to pose your own questions to the team in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

To get the best from this workshop, you should have a solid understanding of aperture, shutter speed, ISO, white balance and the various methods of focussing. This leaves you free to concentrate on trying out the techniques learnt during the day and you are encouraged to submit images for critique after the workshop.
