Backlights and Blasters

Saturday, Oct 5, 2019

1:00pm – 4:00pm

The Light Blaster is a strobe-based image projector. It brings you unlimited possibilities for creative freedom, letting you select and project still images onto any physical space. In an instant, the flash of your strobe can transform an ordinary wall into textures, patterns and more using slides.

The combination between Backlighting and the Light Blaster will take you images to a new dimension directly from the camera.

This workshop not only will teach you how to use the Light Blaster but also how to build your own from simple materials and very low cost.

Learn how to control backlighting.

Backlighting: Learn how to use lights/strobes or natural light to create stunning portraits.

Shape the body from the front – Create dramatic effects directly from the camera.

Costs: £ 50.- each. (Early Bookings: £ 45.- Until September 1st))

Level: Beginners / no technical knowledge required but knowing how to use the basics of your camera is advisable

Requirements: Any camera capable to work in “Manual Mode” and hot shoe (this is desirable but not absolutely necessary as the “Blaster” I will show you how to build can be used with continuous lights too)

Groups up to 6 participants
