together with The London Camera Exchange

Location: Copythorne Parish Hall, Copythorne, Southampton SO40 2NZ

Introduction

Join us with Rotolight and Nikon Professional Services for a day of learning and hands-on shooting. Throughout the day you’ll be able to see how different lighting setups can work for you when shooting portraits using Rotolight’s range of advanced LED lighting. You’ll also have the option of trying out Nikon’s brand new Z series and award-winning D series, as well as a fantastic line-up of their F-mount and S-Line lenses.

On the day, the Rotolight tutor will take you through the entire shooting process; from posing the model and understanding the benefits of a ‘shoot what you see’ workflow, to processing in Lightroom. Get creative with gels, modifiers and different lighting setups – no doubt you’ll leave with some great shots to add to your portfolio!
