I think I can safely say that we had the darkest workshop every just yesterday. And it wasn’t even the workshop on artificial light… But it could have easily been.

And still the participants managed to put up some great images despite the lack of light… Tripod would have to be the magical word here. Without it, it was simply not possible to take a decent shot. The first workshop on articicial lighting was also last week in Almere. Everyone was enthusiastic and I am pretty sure that Ikea had a doubled income this weekend.. And in the light of ‘practice what you preach’ it was time for myself to get out those tiny and cheap Ikea lights.
