On the 13th of April, our members were treated to a lighting masterclass.

Local members Jim Frater ACS along with Gaffer extraordinaire Andrew Piercy, showed us some of the tricks of the trade when lighting faces and managing light and dark complexions. As well as different looks achievable with a limited kit.

In what became a standing-room-only event, even seasoned professionals came away with new tricks for their toolbox.

We thank Jim and Andrew for their time and knowledge, our local sponsors Location Equipment and Cinemachine for supplying cameras, lenses and monitors. And most of all our members for attending on a wet and windy night.
