Wow! What an awesome day. We had a blast at the Lighting Workshop, made some new friends and some fun images. We went over the basics of off camera flash and lighting, talked about various light modifiers and had a chance to let everyone play with the light. The weather was beautiful, turning a bit chilly later in the afternoon. Our model Stephanie rocked the set like a trooper, bearing the brunt both the cooler temperatures and a pack of lighting geeks talking camera code for 4 hours! 😎 I had a metric tonne of fun helping the amazing ladies who attended the workshop to have the same “aha!” moments that I had when I began learning light. I was thrilled to be part of it! Keep reading for more geeky info. 🙂 (more…)
I’m very excited to make available an Off Camera Flash Lighting Workshop I’m doing in South East Saskatchewan on October 13th, 2012 in Roche Percee. It will cover the basics: fundamentals of lighting, getting started with Off Camera Flash techniques and knowledge, familiarization with gear and hands on opportunities to shoot a model on location. It’s going to be a lot of fun! 😎 There are a couple of spots still available so if you are interested, contact me. The cost is $100.00 each and the workshop will start at 1PM.
OK, so the title makes it sound like a Western. Who doesn’t like Westerns?! . . . OK, OK, don’t answer that. 😎 On the weekend we did a photo shoot with a really cool family in the always cool spot of Roche Percee, SK. The caves that formed naturally in the sandstone have been a bit of a tourist magnet for quite some time. And, it is very cool. If you can’t goto Moab, why not check out Roche Percee? 😉 This was a really exciting shoot because I got the chance to shoot fellow photographer & Nikonian, Byron Fichter and his family. Byron is known for his amazing work at the Estevan Motor Speedway. Ironically, I first “met” Byron at the 2011 Eve of Destruction when I took a picture of him taking pictures. We later met again on Facebook talking about photography and such. This year, I finally got to meet him in person for not only this family shoot but also some portrait work of him at 2012 Eve of Destruction. It was a riot and the kids sure had a blast playing in the caves. Very cool spot for photos!
