As the day is still in development there may be more additions to the day. The website will be updated as additions are made.

Rob Pugh – Award Winning Photographer. During today’s live demonstrations Rob will work with his professional model Pip Atkins and demonstrate how to create amazing portraits using Speed-lights and gels. Starting with just one Speed-light he will continue to build by adding multiple lights to create the final image.

After lunch using his styled model he will show you where to position your first light and figure out what your camera settings will be. He will break all the rules by shooting at f2 and look at the details in the image. Most important he will tether his camera to the computer and demonstrate why you should also tether.
