Last week I had the amazing opportunity to travel to St. Louis, Missouri to participate in a one-of-a-kind educational event called, “After Dark Education.” This photography workshop event is very hands-on. I came home with new techniques to try and new products to buy! Actually, I bought over $3000 worth of new equipment back in my hotel room after attending the first day’s workshops.
I stayed at the gorgeous Union Station Doubletree hotel. All of these images were taken in or around the hotel.
This is a pretty typical class. Check out the small class size!! We had full access to the mentors, which I loved. The man in the middle of this image, with the model, is Neil van Niekerk. He taught how to use an off-camera video light to get moody, gorgeous lighting.
The class moved around quite a bit. In this image, the model is on the piano with 2 video lights on her; one to light her hair from behind, and one to give her face light.
This is a class on creativity. Here is the “behind-the-scenes.”
