A Night at the Studio

A Night at the Studio

John Gardner once again opened the doors of his studio for a Wakefield Camera Club evening shoot. Monia was our model and proved exceptionally versatile. As a talented dressmaker, Monia brought a terrific collection of fashion items, gowns and period costumes. John varied the lighting which included very low key with strong side-lighting. This can work well with period costumes. A variety of backdrops were used, ranging from grey to a derelict chateau wall. John felt that these backdrops were a good starting point for compositing too. Although the shoot was organised for two groups, there was only a little duplication which means there will be less ‘deja vu’ when members show their images.
