Norwich & District Photographic Society has an active studio group. Regular shoots are organised with the opportunity to photograph a variety of subjects including models – both male and female. These can be for example portraiture, fashion, and figure studies.
Shoots normally take place on the first Monday evening of each month starting at 7pm. but full details for each shoot are also published beforehand.
Because all studio sessions are self-financing the participants have to cover the additional costs to the Society such as studio hire, studio equipment and model fee. This is normally from £15 to £25 each depending on the location of the shoot and the model and their experience.
So that everyone has the opportunity to get some good shots at each meeting the shoots are usually limited to six (6) photographers to give each member adequate time. Studio flash is normally provided so the only thing needed to participate is a camera.
In addition, from time to time location shoots are also arranged with a model. Past locations used have been a working garage, medieval hall, derelict church, courtroom, disused office, city subway, cemetery and the beaches out on the North Norfolk Coast.
For those members who want to learn more about studio photography the sessions provide the opportunity to learn about setting up and using studio lighting to achieve different styles of image, various composition styles using models, image processing and generally discussing shots.
All studio group shoots are well organised, friendly and fun. We have both male and female photographers taking part and their abilities range from advanced through to beginners.
New members are particularly welcome, and help is always on hand help anyone who needs advice.
