ROB PUGH URBAN PORTRAITS
WITH ROB PUGH
Model: Anna Zella
One of the most popular workshops run by top wedding photographer and Olympus brand ambassador Rob Pugh is ‘urban portraits with speedlights’. The aim of the session is to instruct on how to create amazing shots on the bustling streets of London with just one speedlight, a video light, or just a little bit of imagination.
With this in mind a recent workshop saw a lucky seven attendees meeting up at the Tate Modern and covering five locations. Luckily, this being the depths of winter, there was lots of coffee on the way to keep both photographers and the model, Anna, warm. The resulting images (shown here) are from the day, and display, at most, only a very small amount of retouching.
“At the end of our day everyone took home some new tips and tricks, along with a greater grasp of how speedlights function and an understanding of how to control them to get the very best images under the conditions available,” enthuses Rob.
