Damian McKillicuddy Studio Experience Day

18th August 2013
Had a brilliant day in Chester last Sunday at a Damian McKillicuddy Studio Experience Day and I cannot recommend it enough. Damian is quite a well known professional photographer, has a larger than life personality and is an expert in lighting models using all types of studio lighting and speedlights.
He explains the art of model photography very well and starts by advising us to ask ourselves what is the end result you are trying to achieve and light the model accordingly.
He started by demonstrating the three main types of lighting, Butterfly, Rembrandt and loop and went on to create different sets with Zoe, an excellent professional model, demonstrating with one set how to take a professional looking image using just 2 or 3 speedlights, the final set used mixed lighting colour temperatures, model movement and a smoke machine.
