WELCOME TO THE STUDIO38 PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP - STUDIO38, Unit 38, Price Street Business Centre, Price Street, Birkenhead, Merseyside, CH41 4JQ!
This regular group meeting is aimed at providing an opportunity for amateur models and photographers to gain studio experience and collaborate on a mainly TFP basis (and also just talk photography to the only people who will listen to us all!). So that any nervous new models and photographers alike can be assured of a safe and comfortable way to ease in to the world of studio photography, there will be no nudity, lingerie, etc.
We will concentrate on teaching each other and practicing lighting, camera technique, posing, etc. Between us we explore themes that will help you grow as a portrait photographer such as fashion shoots (the studio has a modest but growing rack of clothes and props we can use), head-shots, beauty portraiture, character portraiture, etc. or more creative themes. There are also a few good spots within the business centre for "on location" shots. For our previous meet ups the models brought some fantastic clothes and we have used props like a guitar, replica guns, angel wings, etc. and effects like coloured gels and a smoke machine.
It costs only £10 per photographer to help subsidize the studio costs, if enough people attend on a regular basis, there will hopefully be a small surplus to pay some expenses or fees to the models or buy fun things like smoke machine fluid and more props.
For now, models are asked to attend on a TFP basis but please don't think of it as "working for free" as you are a part of the group too - we want models to relax, have fun, learn a few things and get some good photos for your portfolio.
So far, our meetings have been a huge success with models and photographers alike all having a great time and accomplishing everything they hoped for and much more, there is a great atmosphere and everyone has a lot of fun!
The next shoot is set for Monday 13/05/2019 start 6:30pm, finish 9:30pm. If attendance is high enough then we can split into smaller groups and rotate on-location around the complex or in a hired room with shooting in the studio.
We have a facebook page and group so attendees can continue to share photos and ideas before and after the shoots - https://www.facebook.com/studio38group/
