I recently took the Intermediate DSLR evening class at Photofusion (based in Brixton) and I rather enjoyed it!

It comprised of four evenings: one with a more contextual overview of photography and composition, a studio lighting set up which was fun (and I ran out and brought a wireless trigger kit for my flashguns :-D) and the last class covered Adobe Lightroom which I knew a fair amount about but did find some more interesting shortcuts and tips to use.

Paul Ellis is the main tutor with Richard Wills who took the Adobe Lightroom class.

Richard also recommended a couple of books which is always an excuse for me to visit Amazon… I now have even more books that are lined up to read… the pile is getting larger and larger!

Heres a couple of shots from the studio class…

One key light only (round softbox/beauty dish) which background! Two images with same Fstop but different speeds - to show that with flash there is no difference

key light round softbox/beauty dish), white background (brought out by two back lights which were metered to be 1 stop over exposed. Photofusion Intmediate DSLR class - day 2 studio flash etc.

(halo effect) key light round softbox/beauty dish), black BG with one halo light behind head which were metered to be 1 stop over exposed. Photofusion Intmediate DSLR class - day 2 studio flash etc.

4 sec with two flash and showing still flash and then movement from person in non flash shutter open - Photofusion Intmediate DSLR class - day 2 studio flash etc.

We did go out by the Rizty in Brixton but as lining up 9 camera & tripods would have been a pain we used Photofusion’s own cameras and split into two groups.
