Studio Lighting and Model

I'm still here and I'm still shooting and learning.  As I said in a previous post, I've been focusing on learning to shoot portraits.  My biggest challenge is I haven't created a model release form, so I haven't been posting many people portraits, but I'll work on that as well as try to remember to post other great things I'm learning.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of taking a studio lighting workshop that was offered through my photography meetup group.  The experience was amazing.  I learned a little about studio lighting, I had the pleasure of working with a very very talented New York model and most of all I had a blast!!  Below are a few shots from the workshop, and I'm pretty stoked about how the pictures came out.  

Lesson Learned:
First lesson learned is I can't afford studio lighting at this time...way way out of my budge; but, there are studios and equipment available in your town for rent. So if you're looking for an opportunity to get started there are options.  The other lessons  I learned was how to aim for a glamour shot, how different angles of lighting in a studio affect the degree and tone of shadows, I learned about strobe lighting, light boxes and I can go on an on.  If you ever have the opportunity to take a class or workshop to learn how to shoot in a studio, don't sleep on opens up another world of possibilities to lighting, especially once it starts to get cold outside.

Unveiling in the studio,


  1. Those are absolutely stunning shots! I'm so jealous that you got to be a part of and learn all that neat stuff :)

    What a great opportunity!

  2. Thanks Kayla,
    It was an amazing opportunity. One I probably wont get again! :)
