I have been covering digital photography courses at Brooklands Museum in Surrey for over four years now, the fashion ones always prove really popular as it is a chance for the photographers attending to get some great portrait images for there portfolios. Today Gemma, Siobhan and Sophie were resplendent in a mix 0f 1930's to 60's rockabilly looks giving a mixture of looks and styles for the images. I also had tow great classic cars on hand, a Triumph TR4 and a col looking black 1930's Ford Coupe, really fond of this car as I am a big ZZ Top fan and this car appeared in a lot of there videos and artwork.

There were six photographers on today's course, the majority had not done any model photography before so today gave them a chance to capture three different looking models against the cast range of backdrops at Brooklands. The key for the course is to think more about composition, lighting and posing the girls. The aid of a reflector was a big part of today's portraits,a small investment for a lighting aid that makes a massive difference to the overall image. The next fashion photography course takes place at Brooklands Museum on Sunday 18th October, spaces are limited at a maximum of six photographers. The price is £150 and includes lunch and refreshments.
