Orbis – simple portrait tutorial

Have you seen this… a really nice basic portrait demo with a fun kids shoot.

The orbis™ transforms the harsh light from your SLR flash gun to create beautiful, shadowless photos quickly and easily. You don’t need any specialised knowledge or technique. The orbis™ fits to your flash in seconds — no bulbs, no batteries, no training course!

You put the orbis™ onto your flash, lift it up in front of the camera and bingo, stunning, shadowless light, anywhere, every time.

If you’re a keen, talented photographer who rarely uses your SLR flash because you don’t like the results, the orbis™ ring flash is perfect for you. Lighting your photos with the orbis™ opens a whole new world of photography.

The inventor of the orbis™ ring flash, James Madelin, is coming to Birmingham for a one-off free event !

Based around the concept of a Photowalk, James and Snapperstuff will host walks around three cities in September in Leeds, Birmingham and London.

James will be teaching some of his techniques for strobist-style photography using the orbis™ system and other portable and affordable lighting gear.

With years of experience as a pro photographer and more recently as a “photopreneur”, you’re guaranteed a fun evening. There’ll be a model along and you’ll have the chance to get some fantastic photos of your own.

You don’t have to bring any gear, but to get the most from the event, bring an SLR, a flash gun, a portrait lens (50-70mm) and a way to fire your flash off camera (off camera cord, radio trigger, etc.). If you bring your own orbis™ you’ll be guaranteed to get some insider tips from James.

James and the Snapperstuff team will bring some orbis™ gear along too for you to try.

Having learnt from the inventor all the great lighting effects easily achievable with the orbis™ system, you’ll be able to buy your own orbis™ kit to take home with you.

NEWSFLASH – James will be bringing his latest product, the frio™ coldshoe. Don’t miss your chance for an exclusive pre-launch look at this exciting innovation from enlight photo. Shoot smarter™ !
