Creative Wedding Photography Workshop Ashfield House
Just before our destination trip to Tenerife, Pixsmiths undertook a fabulous creative wedding photography training workshop lead by amazing Neil Redfern Photography.
The workshop took place at the award winning wedding venue Ashfield House in Lancashire. We had a warm welcome there and excellent lunch too.
Always striving for the best for our couples so we never stop learning new techniques and creative angles so when this workshop came up we quickly got on board.
The workshop was limited to ten places so everyone had ample to time to learn from Neil individually as well as time to shoot the fantastic models – Ky and Louisa and Beth
The morning session was geared towards natural light and creativeness. Getting it right in camera is key rather than a lot of photo-shopping effects in.
so the reflections seen in the shots are done in camera, neat eh!
After a delicious hot lunch it was time to move outside for some natural portraits and flash techniques.
There seemed to be some lurking behind bushes and leaves but it made for fab pics akin to our layered style we already enjoy,
Such an enjoyable educational day, Neil is a marvellous teacher and we highly recommend his workshops.
Very much a case of everyone having the opportunity to shoot and direct the models not just a “watch me this is how its done” approach.
Upcoming 2018 Weddings
Great to meet with like-minded photographers and everyone learned so much and came away buzzing with the creative techniques and raring to put them into action on a wedding day.
Neil explained the techniques so easily and showed how it could be set up really quickly so couples are not hanging around on their wedding day – time to mingle with guests is so important
Our couples this year are going to love the extra edge to their portraits with us – still not over posed either – we do love the natural images with a timeless quality.
They make beautiful portraits for wedding albums too.
We cannot wait to share more of these type of images with you from our upcoming 2018 weddings
