Studio and Portrait Group:
Open sessions are held regularly throughout the season for studio members. These are notified in the Syllabus and are practical sessions preferably based on a theme for the night. Group Members are encouraged to contribute to the sessions and where a model is hired a shared cost of around £4 – £5 may be charged. More detail on each session will be posted, where appropriate nearer to each session, announcing the theme and who is leading. Any Studio Member who has a specific suggestion for a theme or who would like to lead a session, please contact the Group Secretary
Studio and Portrait Group (Beginners only)
Note – You do not need to pay the Studio Subscription to attend the beginners’ sessions.
Separate beginners-only sessions are planned for those new to studio photography. These beginner sessions will be scheduled between October and April, with dates and topics announced by Malkit Benning via EPS group email. At least two weeks notice will be provided. Please reply to the email if you are interested in attending. As long as there are at least 3 notes of interest, the event will go ahead as planned. The objective is to hold a minimum of 6 beginners sessions covering various studio and portraiture related topics (as long as there is enough interest). These sessions will have a theory component and also a small element of practical photography in the studio – this may involve photographing still life and also possibly volunteer models. There is no fee for attending, but each beginner is encouraged to submit at least 2 or 3 images from any practical element of a workshop – either to be used in the EPS bulletin, or to be forwarded on to any volunteer model as a thank you for their time.
You do not have to be a studio member to attend – the only criteria is that you are a current EPS member and are new to studio/portrait photography. Remember to bring your camera and also flash (if you have one). Sessions will be planned for a weekday evening that is not already booked by another EPS sub-group or event.
