Themed Photo-Shoot: Film Noir Photography with Welshot - Black and White Photo of Woman at a card table with a man in uniform hovering in background

Film Noir Photography – a style or genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace. Originally applied (by a group of French critics) to American thriller or detective films made in the period 1944–54 and to the work of directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and Billy Wilder, at this themed photo-shoot by Welshot you will be using Off Camera Flash as well as Studio Mains Flash using elements such as cynical heroes (Your models), stark lighting effects and learning how to use lighting modifier, special effects and props to tell a story in your photography of intrigue and mystery.

Themed Photo-Shoot: Recreate A Grand Master Paining with Welshot - Photograph depicting The Singing Butler by ack Vettriano

Always a firm favourite of photographic delegates, this themed photo-shoot: Recreate A Grand Master Painting with Welshot will be no different. For the first time we will be using the St Mary’s Creative Space in the historic City of Chester for a full day event and we will have at least six mains studio flash sets, complete with props, models wearing a stunning array of costumes and mood/vision boards to help you recreate those paintings in your camera. For our 2022 Recreate a Grand Masters themed photo-shoot, we will also be throwing in some contemporary paintings and still-life photography for those who would like to capture something a little different.
