Before we begin

2 Lights Required

You can use any brand of equipment to create these shots. I have a detailed equipment section in every course so that you can look up the equivalents to what I am using with the brands you shoot with. Every shot that you see in the workflow is straight off camera. There is no smoke and mirrors here so when the test shots come up on screen, they are genuine shots, dust spots, not straight and all the other small mistakes I may make, I show you. Unless the shot has 'final image' written next to it, everything you see is straight off camera. The photos at the bottom on this page are the final retouched shots and I'll show you how I got there in the retouching section and provide you with the free actions you need to complete the same techniques.

Autumn Portraits

Join me in a beautiful wood with autumn colours to create some natural looking portraits in a great setting. Using just two lights, we will balance our flash with the natural light and even replicate the look of late afternoon sun.
