9 1/2 hour portrait session

29th October 2011
A good busy day yesterday as we met up with around 40 families for the annual Dunbar Woman's Group charity portrait sessions.
Lots of happy smiling kids (and yeah a few grumpy chops but that's kids for you). Everyone seem to enjoy themselves anyway.

It was a great day for Cat's Row Studios though as we pushed our energies, equipment and old legs to the max. 9 1/2 hours of constant flashing for the studio lights is testament to the manufacturers build quality - well done to Lencarta & Bowens there !

Got to admit though, I was getting slow and sore towards the end of the night, but my fish supper reward was well received :)

We set up 3 different shot options, with high key white full length background, a dark brown sit down area, and for the older kids - a funky black & white wall/pillar shot.

We managed to rig the light in 2 set ups that lit the 3 areas how we wanted them though, to keep the areas as clear as possible.

So the portfolio is up now, and we are making a donation from every sale to Dunbar Woman's Group. Thanks once again to Karen Bell for setting this up, to Ali for being my time keeper and co-ordinator and most of all to everyone that came along to take part.
