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.
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 it...it opens up another world of possibilities to lighting, especially once it starts to get cold outside.
