Some of our Farmers take a slightly competitive approach to Image Of The Week and this could be true of our resident lighting guru Adam Bronkhorst. He badgered me quite a bit before he eventually picked up his first Image Of The Week so I am sure he will be more than delighted to have picked up a second. What I love about this image is that although he is the King of Off Camera Flash, Adam also knows when to use the available light. The contrast between the street lighting and the lighting in the alcove mean that the couple are bathed in warm light and the whole scene has a painterly quality. He loves his central composition and this works really well here, drawing the eye straight to the couple in what almost looks like a still from the film Brighton Rock. Well done Adam, this image really is beautiful.

rm-142Adam is teaching a series of classes at next week’s Farm Week. On Friday the 31st, he is doing a workshop on flash and then off camera flash for wedding photographers. On Sunday the 2nd, he is offering a class called The Mobile Studio which will help you to deliver portraits anywhere that have a studio feel to them. Will still have spaces on both of these days and would love to have you join us.
