One of the things I started last year is a regular meet up with fellow photographers. Those of you who have followed my Facebook page, will have seen the previous outings have included, exploring some ruins, a walk around Hitchin Town alleyways and hidden haunts, and lightpainting at Minsden Chapel. So for January I organised for two models, a designer and my good friend Luke to bring his portable lighting set up. It was the largest gathering to date, and Jon managed to secure us a room above his local pub, so it was all systems go. Flo and Red were brilliant models, and as they are in a band together, have a great chemistry. Posing alone and together they really were fantastic. Some in my group had never shot using studio lighting, or the backdrop, so learned lots from this friendly introduction into this studio set up. Hattie Gryspeerdt kindly brought along some of her designs for Flo to model (none for Red!) as I had seen her work in Jack my design in Hitchin and loved it. Big thanks to all who turned out and for the new members of the group. If you are interested in future meetings, leave me a comment here and send me a message and I will your eyes peeled on my Facebook page where I post the forthcoming events.
