Dance on Location
Mark Cleghorn takes us behind the scenes on one of his inspiration workshops. As Mark and the group of keen photographers shoot a winged male dancer on the shores of Wales.
Mark takes the photographers to an interesting rocky beach just 10 minutes from his studios in South Wales. Explaining his approach and giving a general overview of the day, Mark takes us through the variety of different images he captured while explaining how uses focal length to manipulate what the camera sees to capture a different view of the location. Then to add more drama to the image Mark brings in an Elinchrom ELB 400 portable flash unit demonstrating the amazing effect a single flash can have on an image, especially when excluded with the right technique. Moving through the location Mark demonstrates a range of techniques to produce inspirational pieces. To finish off the session Mark adds another flash to the mix to really bring the dancer to life as he leaps through the air.
