Back in March, I participated in a photography workshop with Exposure Denver about lighting with models. I think over the course of 2.5 hours I shot about 550 shots. We covered using natural light and augmenting with reflectors and diffusers as well as using hot-shoe sync’d lights. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot, although I am hoping I’ll be able to do something like that again. I could definitely use the practice since I tend to mainly take picture of cake.
I was pretty nervous in my pathetic attempts to direct the models. I think that’s something I could definitely learn to do better.
In any case, here’s a couple of the pictures that I think came out pretty well. Looking at them now, about 2 months later, I think I could probably go back today and process them a little different to come out with an even better result. I may have to look at doing that.
