Gavin Hoey's lecture was very enjoyable and towards the end he talked our very own Ian Taylor to pose for him whilst he showed how to use various speedlight set-ups.

He transformed Ian from his normal shy self to a farmer looking in the night for his lost sheep in the snow.
I looked so realistic that we could even hear the cries of a lost sheep in the audience.
(please note that no animals were harmed in the creation of the final image)

There are rumours that Ian is being pestered by local schools to star in nativity plays next Christmas.
