Shoot, View & BBQ Fort Victoria

IWDIG BBQ-1192

 

Taking advantage of the spell of glorious summer weather the Isle of Wight Digital Imaging Group moved their venue to Fort Victoria for the group meeting this week.  A shoot, view and BBQ was the theme for the evening, although the viewing will take place at the meeting next week. ‘Contrast’ was the photographic task set for the evening with the fort, beach and woodland providing plenty of scope for colour, texture and lighting contrasts.

Although the shooting continued throughout the evening, taking advantage of the sunset, location and the sailing around Hurst Castle, the BBQ brought the photography to a halt for a while. With choc-ices, sausages & burgers, fresh strawberries & cupcakes, lashings of ginger beer and plenty to go around a great time was had by everyone. Thanks to Amanda for all of the food preparation, John for teas & coffees and David for supplying the home-grown strawberries. Everyone agreed that it was a great feast and that the evening couldn’t have been better,  sunshine and a warm breeze,  let’s look forward to a few more of these!

Studio Lighting Courses

The IWDIG is pleased to promote the Studio Lighting Courses as shown below. Many of our photographers have already attended one or more of these courses and they come highly recommended,

The course was great, I learnt a lot and was impressed by how professional both the trainer and model were. I’m looking forward to a refresher course later in the year, thanks.

If you’ve always wanted to try studio photography, learn about lighting or just take the chance to shoot a professional model why not give one of these courses a go. To check-out Charlotte’s professional model portfolio just click the picture below.
