Subject for 13th of Februay is Portraiture by Bradley Matthews

I will be bringing a lighting set up & background to demonstrate the use of model lighting, I will also bring a few photos , so I will need a print stand & yes I hope to bring a model, so your members can use their cameras. Is it possible to arrive half an hour earlier to set up, please advise what time on Tuesday is best. A member of The Dorset Dozen Portrait Group will be helping me. I am hoping this will be a practical evening, rather than a lecture, as I am sure many of your members will be quite knowledgeable !
