These guys, Alun Maxwell (l) and Paul Ryan (r), from 'Improve On You', run presentation, personal communication and sales training - and very good at it they are too!
They had asked me to photograph a recent seminar they were running, which was a great opportunity for them to acquire a variety of still images for use in both online and print media.
The seminar took place in a 'character' building that wasn't really designed for the purpose. We found ourselves in a big, light room with plenty of space – and lit with bright daylight from large windows behind the participants and a variety of artificial lights in the ceiling.
From a technical point of view, the different colour temperatures and brightness levels involved always makes for fun when balancing the finished pictures! On occasions such as this, working with the available light is the order of the day, as flash would have been too distracting and create other technical challenges. The exception is the picture of Alun and Paul above.
As you can see from the pictures here, the results were just fine and the clients very happy. The audience had a good time too!
