West End Girl – London Night Shoot Workshop

West End Girl – London Night Shoot Workshop

Another great night in London with Amy and a group of photographers shooting in London’s West End for our London night shoot workshop.

A mixture of ambient and mixed ambient with flash was planned and through the evening, working on and off tripods.

I managed to grab a few on this second date as well. I constrained myself to a Helios 44/2 Russian lens on the X-T3 shooting handheld for all of these. Not bad for a sub £20 f/2 portrait lens. Amy was fab as usual.

A huge amount of window display lights used for Amy’s face produced very bright conditions for this bokeh shot. Yes there are in excess of 20 highlights in her eyes!

A test shot that I ended keeping as it worked quite well with Amy off guard.
The Helios is susceptible to huge amounts of flare and halation that can be used for effect.
