This training video, written and presented by Damien Lovegrove, is set against the backdrop of a fabulous 17th century English country house. Starring both Chloe-Jasmine Whichello (star of X Factor UK 2014) and Jamie Roche this video tutorial will show you how to recreate the enigmatic charm of a bygone era of photography. Damien ventures into the bedrooms, the music room, the library, the grounds and even the cellar to explain and demonstrate the classic lighting techniques he learned on his lighting director training at the BBC in the early 1990s.
