Lighting Workshop with Lou

The weekend of September 17th and 18th I participated in a lighting workshop with photography legend Lou Jones. Day one we spent in the studio studying new ways to use Speedlights instead of traditional bulky, heavy studio strobes. Lou shared with the class many little knowledge gems that will change my approach to shooting in so many ways. From clamps to gobos and other simple techniques, they will take me into new heights in my photography. On the second day he took us to the streets to use the fill light to make for more interesting images. It is my pleasure to share these images with you.

Beach Day

On September 10th I was lucky enough to be able to photograph two sisters and their four children – ages 5,3,2,and 6 weeks. The family had tried a more traditional photographer and studio but that did not work out for this high energy family. The beach offered a great location to channel the energy, though it posed a true challenge to the photographer. I can say, I got my cardio that day, chasing after this very fun group … up and down the beach. The family was very happy with what we got out of this ‘sitting’. I hope you enjoy this sampling of this fabulous day.
