Gothic Portraits on Location
We join Mark out on location in an abandoned welsh castle as he and the delegates shoot fantastic Gothic portraits with his brilliant muse Ryo.
Recorded on location during a live workshop Mark guides the delegates through shooting natural light portraits on location. Mark initially starts by explaining how and why he picks where he shoots when he arrives at a location, the light that he looks for and his choice of backgrounds. They then progress around the location looking for a variety of areas using the same principles. Finally they head inside looking for a darker location for a bit of off-camera flash and more dramatic, edgier images.
