5 February - 7 February 2016
found light photography (with a toutch of fill-in flash tutorial and practical)
A photographic excursion to Botshabelo, a historical village situated 5km from Middelburg. Photography of models in contemporary settings with todays fashion (creating a creative paradox) using available light with 'real time' fill-light.
Shoots will take place in- and outdoors, using the antique architecture and interior. Techniques such as using reflectors, light metering using the grey card, styling and placement of models will be demonstrated.
The Botshabelo masterclass workshops have become a photo teambuild experience of note. The old students and some 'really old' students join in with the current Full-time and part-time students to make it a great educational and fun weekend. This is also the initiation weekend for 2016 students.
VSS students, old students, VSS CREATIVE virtual club members, Photo Challenge Camera Club members and PSSA members rates for weekend; R900-00 including model fees, meals and two nights' accommodation.
Before finalising any booking first confirm with Christine on availability of space since these workshops are extremely popular and apart from the VSS students a limited number of 'outside' photographers can be accommodated.
Accommodation is dormitory style with bedding.
For couples not wanting dormitory accommocation, an extra levy of R100 per night is charged per person sharing - these rooms are limited.
Masterclass workshop will be headed by Hein Waschefort
