I’d never shot boudior before this, so I’m not sure if I should have been at an advanced boudior session, but it was an amazing excuse to meet up with a long time forum friend, Lloyd Yoon of Night and Day Photography from Canada.
Lloyd has been on a fashion hot spot tour, visiting New York, Milan, Geneva, Paris and finally London.
As Lloyd was in the UK he asked a few of us to join him and he would set up a bit of a workshop. 5 of us could not turn down an invitation to shoot with Lloyd, the guy is a superstar, a lighting genius, and an absolute top guy.
As stated at the top, I’d not shot any boudior before, so I had no idea whether or not I’d be any good at it, enjoy it or if I’d just blush and giggle when I saw the girls (being the shy and retiring type that I am).
Lloyd explained why posing is so much more important with boudior than some other types of photgraphy, and as he demonstrated I was blown away at how he changed a really good pose into an amzing pose. then we discussed lighting, and lighting modifiers (my wife isn’t happy at how much my shopping list has just grown).
Then it was our turn to try it out, our first model was also our make up artist, Zana. Lloyd ran through some poses, and explained that boudior is all about making your model (who ever they may be) feel the very best they can, as they will relax and allow you to get the best photographs of them, awesome tip!!
Next up was Katya, she also braved up to the night air for some outdoor photography, which was cool.
I learnt so much by watching Lloyd work, and with everything that he shared, so a massive thank you Lloyd, from the bottom of my heart….you are a star.
Also big thanks to both Zana and Katya for being great, with a special big thanks to Katya for braving the cold weather and for your wonderful choice in music!!
Robert “Bob” Whetton made this little poster for Lloyd, it’s a play on an awesome DVD on lighting called One Light, I was watching it not long before London, and my good buddy Tony said he was looking forward to the One Lloyd Workshop more! Nice one guys it looks way cool
