Allyce -The Thirty Minute Portrait Shoot

In our Creative Photography Workshop this week, I demonstrated a thirty-minute portrait shoot. Our model is the delightful Allyce, who is fifteen years old, and I had never previously met. The location was our usual meeting room at Tottington Library, with no photographic backdrops or props, only a red chair. 

Despite being watched by twenty onlookers and mum, Allyce soon settled in, and we achieved some lovely images.

'The Room' a short film by the Wednesday Photography Workshop

I hold a photography workshop every Wednesday evening at Bury Adult Learning Centre. The learners are a great, good-humoured bunch and so I decided to exploit this nuttiness and put together this short stop-start animated film. The crew brought in their own props and all had some input into the order of events. 

The stills were shot on a Canon 5DII which does have very good HD video facility, but I wanted that staccato jumpiness that stop-start films have. The average movie has around twenty-four frames per second, whereas our little film has a new frame every 0.75 of a second. There is one hundred and ten individual frames, not including titles. The music was downloaded from bensound.com, and the whole film was put together using Pictures to EXE.

Here's a little glimpse into the crazy world of the Wednesday Night Photo Workshop. It may not be original, but it was great fun to do and it makes us smile. Enjoy!
