    I've never shot photographs in a studio before; so when the opportunity arose to attend a Leica S2 workshop conducted by Darren Centofanti, modelled by Corinne Adrienne, it was too good to pass up. One of those happy coincidences when work aligned with interest; i needed to see how such a workshop was conducted, and why it would appeal to a particular audience segment. I got my wish.

    Darren was an enthusiastic coach: he kept things simple to understand, he didn't use jargons, just straightforward, "do this and do this and you'll be fine" pointers. What works in a studio environment, how the S2 performs, and how to handle a professional model.

    The model, Corinne Adrienne, had a ton of experience and it showed: instinctively, she knew how to move her face, tilting it in a variety of positions ever so slightly in order to give Darren the shot he wanted. The light play on her remarkably sharp features were incredible; before this i would never have guessed how much effort, aforethought and talent it takes to be a professional model. The better the model, the easier the photographer's job, the better the photos. And good she is.
