Hollywood style workshop
By Damien Lovegrove
The classic Hollywood portraits from the golden age of film conjure up visions of fantasy, beauty and romance. These evocative images have always been a style that is in great demand among high society.
In this workshop
“In this workshop I’m going to share with you the skills, formulas, and iconic styling features needed to recreate the Hollywood look. Together we will capture visual masterpieces, finely tuned to perfection”.
The Hollywood style
“I’m often asked what makes a portrait ‘Hollywood’ in style. My answer is; the finely controlled use of hard light from classic spotlights, a narrow depth of field, and a high-quality monochrome print. Vintage Hollywood photography also needs appropriate hair, make up, and fashion styling. Hollywood is not all about the past; there is a new genre taking hold among social photographers which fuses classic Hollywood lighting with modern fashion styles. The crisp light that we will use closely resembles natural sunlight and makes skin come alive. We will shoot both high key and low key portraits in the boudoir and reception rooms of the hotel.”
