Aperture Woolwich Photographic Society workshop evening

I recently attended a photography workshop run by the Über talented pairing of Brooke Shaden and Miss Anelia

They teach both practical and digital techniques to make it appear that people can float or levitate in shots , and since I have grasped this concept I have decided to work on a series of shots along this theme. I have been buying some costumes and masks on eBay and am currently story-boarding some ideas.

On Tuesday 22nd feb I was asked to explain and demonstrate these techniques to my fellow members of Aperture Woolwich Photographic Society

The room we use is ideal , with wood paneled walls and oak floors for that spooky old haunted house look!  My daughter donned a very Victorian bridesmaid's dress that we got on ebay and spent the evening posing for members to take their shots in preparation to a follow-up digital workshop next week , when they will be shown some basic photoshop trickery to transform their images into something a little out of the ordinary by our resident Photoshop wizards Leigh and Marshall.
