Join Olympus Ambassador Gavin Hoey for another live photo shoot on the OlympusUK Facebook page, where he’ll share some of his favourite photography techniques. In this session Gavin will be sharing some tips for how you can make amazing close up photos of colouring pencils.

The humble colouring pencil might not sound like the most exciting starting point for photography but as Gavin will demonstrate, there’s plenty of ways to get creative with pencils. From patterns to bubbles, this shoot at home session is packed with simple ideas that will get you reaching for your camera. To create maximum impact, Gavin will be using the Olympus 60mm Macro lens to get in close and really fill the frame. Good photos always need good light and although this session could be completed with natural light, a small off camera flash is Gavin’s preferred light.

As always Gavin will take you through every step of the shoot but if there’s anything that Gavin misses out, you can always ask him a question during the live session.

This is a stay at home photo shoot and although Gavin will be using his Olympus kit, the information will be relevant to all photographers, regardless of what camera brand they’re using. Everyone is welcome – so please invite other photographer friends to join us!

The session lasts roughly 45 minutes, is completely free, 100% live and exclusive to the Olympus UK Facebook page. No booking necessary – just make your way over to www.facebook.com/OlympusUK/live at 2pm BST on Friday 19th June to join! If you can’t make it live or you want to watch Gavin’s tips again, the event will be also recorded.
