Hollywood Style Portrait Photography Workshop

Sunday 4th December 2016

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.

The Golden Age of Hollywood produced iconic images of the big stars shot by the likes of George Hurrell, CS Bull, Bert Six and Eugene Robert Richee. In their day they would have battled with plate cameras and massive lights on the sound stages of Paramount and MGM.

Appleton Photo Traingin Hollywood Style Portraits Workshop at Saracen House Studio Milton Keynes

In this one day workshop we will look at how we can create images that have a similar look using modern lighting and cameras. We will shoot with studio flash, speedlights and constant ‘hot’ lights.

The day is split into 3 parts:

  • Analysing the genre and how to style, light and shoot it
  • Shooting 3 different sets including film noire
  • Post processing in mono and colour with Lightroom and Photoshop

With only 6 delegates everyone can get involved with plenty of shooting time

Refreshments and a light lunch are provided
