Adorama (https://www.adorama.com), one of my favorite photo equipment stores in New York offers all these great workshops within their “event space”.
This was the first that I ever visited, but i learned so much and met very nice photographers – I will com back !
Instructor Daniel Norton set up all this fantastic lighting and explained everything thoroughly. During the setup every attending photographer had the chance to take a few pictures with his own gear. It was exciting and fun to work with the models and I am always full of creative ideas and did some experiments of my own.
But the most interesting was to see what the other participants with more experience did – everyone used different poses and aspects. And yes, there was a woman with an iPhone and some guys with a $5k equipment …
The results couldn’t be more different.
After everybody was finished I took the opportunity to ask if I could get a photo of myself taken in that setup, was still looking for a new Headshot for my business.
Creating Photos with Studio lighting is so very nice, something I really want to practice more with it – especially with the new LED devices.
