Captured Journeys Photography Workshop | Glamour Portrait Photographer in Haymarket VA.

September 11, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

In an effort to continually improve and learn, I take every opportunity possible to attend workshops and classes. I was delighted to be able to attend a workshop hosted by Kelly Schneider of Captured Journeys Photography and his lovely wife. Even better, my photography buddies Keyla of Keyla S Photography and and Andy of Andy Wing Photo were able to attend with me. 

We first started out just using natural light and learning how to maximize its benefits.

We then tried to use off-camera flash and strobes to create more drama in our images. Unfortunately, only one trigger had to be shared among a group of photographers. And how many times did I shove my way to the top to grab that trigger and get some shots? Well, it's evident from the following photographs that I didn't get a chance to use it even once. I was so careful to wait my turn and make sure that everybody had a turn that I never got one :)

There were a couple of photographers in the group who worked themselves up to the front of the bunch and decided that they just weren't going to let go of that trigger! LOL. I am much too nice I suppose so I didn't get any creative shots with off-camera flash but I enjoyed capturing the following images anyway.

We then took the fun indoors and took some photos using either natural light from a window or a ring light with off-camera flash as an accent light on the hair.
