We want to thank everyone who attended our Flash Lighting Workshop in November last year as well as Camera Pro for lending us some useful gear and some extra hands. Thanks to Nick Bedford for leading the workshop with the assistance of Morgan, Tyler and Simon. It was a great afternoon.

These are the results of the workshop along with the settings and a description of the lighting used to create the portrait. We hope you learned a thing or two about lighting and portraits and will see you at the next WECC event!

One of my favourite pictures from the session however, was lit only by the hard sunlight coming through into the shed. Along with Dan's pose, it created a very thoughtful portrait.
