    Figuratively Speaking – Flour and Movement with Mieka Muse

    When: Sun 30th Sept 2018, 11am-3pm.
    Where: Thomastown (Melbourne)
    Price: $180 per person
    Suitable for: Intermediate to Advanced
    Instructors: Brett Dorron.

    Put aside your Grand Final hangovers and come shoot some fun, flour and movement with Mieka Muse.

    In this four hour workshop at Legend Studio in Thomastown, we will start out shooting movement with cloth and materials in available light. This will allow us to experiment with shutter speeds and blur. It's a really great way to emphasise the feminine and I'm hoping we get a good share of female photographers at this Post Grand Final gathering. After a coffee and snack, we'll move into Studio 2 where we are going to make a really huge mess. Yes, here we will be shooting with flour and more movement. Freezing the action. I really believe everyone, especially our model Mieka Muse, is going to have a whole lot of fun with this. Mieka will be perfect for this and I am really looking forward to shooting with her and seeing the images that result.
