Camera used – Fujifilm XT-2, with a 56mm 1.2 lens. My ISO was 1250, the aperture was wide open at F/1.2, and the shutter speed 1/100s.

The only available light was from the fairy lights.

I’ve done my post-processing in Luminar.

! Studio Re-Opening !

We are happy to announce that from today Monday 15th June we are re-starting our photography workshops!

It has been long three months, and we’ve been really looking forward to this day…

To adhere to the 2 meters social distancing rule we are limiting the number of course participants to 3 only.

For the moment we are only running beginner-level courses, but we hope to add more intermediate and specialised workshops soon.

Thank you for your patience, support and understanding!
