Hasselblad, ePHOTOzine, broncolor and Hasselbladstudios ran an all day event for ePHOTOzine members. After a brief introduction to the day, the lighting setup was explained. The first lighting setup in the morning was with the broncolor para fb 220cm - they do larger and smaller versions of this. Katie Green is the model, who started "Say No to Size Zero", you can view her website here.

Camera and lens introduction / instructions. Happy birthday to Les Knight who came to the day on his 65th birthday! You could take you pick from the Hasselblad H4D 31mp, 40mp, 50mp, or 60mp cameras! Members brought their own memory cards so that they could take the photos home with them, and then edit them later in Phocus - Hasselblad's free RAW image converter - available here.
Many lenses to choose from - from 35mm (0.7x magnification) to 300mm telephoto, including some telephoto zoom lenses.
