Virtual Event

Head over to the @OlympusUK Facebook page on 27th October at 2pm (BST) if you dare, where Olympus Ambassador Gavin Hoey will be hosting another live Tech Tuesday session, the spooktacular subject of this edition is shooting portraits with a dark, Halloween theme.

Are you brave enough to pay a visit to the lockdown dentist? If so, you’re in for a treat as Gavin will be taking you through his self-portrait tricks for people who would rather be behind the camera than in front of it. He’ll start with finding a concept, and demonstrate how simple styling can be used to create a spooky character. Even more important then styling is lighting and low-key light is the way to go for Halloween. As you’ll discover, a single speedlight can create plenty of atmosphere and at the same time, it allows you to hide in the shadows.

During the session he will demonstrate how to make best use of the cameras self-timer function, so you stay in the frame and in focus. Of course no Halloween shoot would be complete without one of Gavin’s favourite accessories, so expect plenty of tips on using a smoke machine in a small home studio.

As usual, Gavin will be using his Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III camera throughout, but everyone is welcome, no matter what camera you own.

He’ll also be available to answer any technical questions you might have LIVE, so come prepared with a list of what’s puzzling you and ask anything you like (within reason!).

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 Tuesday 27th October to join!
