Posts Tagged ‘strobist’

About a month or so ago I met fellow photographer Steven Skelton at a mixer at Zack Arias‘s studio.  Since meeting we have kept in touch, chatted on Facebook, followed each other’s work, and now have had the chance to shoot together!  Steven put together a strobist group in Athens, Georgia (Go Dawgs) and they had their first meeting at the Oneta Building on the outskirts of town.  Strobist style shooting just basically means shooting with off camera flash and can give you some really cool effects.  Most of these shots were done with my 580EXII flash and a 60 inch umbrella to soften the light.

Thanks so much to my dear friend Renee for joining us as a model……she was a total trooper.  She’s probably feeling like she has whiplash from a car crash after we made her flip her hair over about 15 times to get this shot…….

Thanks so much to everyone in Athens that extended such a warm welcome to your group.  It was a pleasure shooting with you and I hope to join you again next time! Ciao for now……

The OneLight workshop was incredible.  Zack Arias’s approachable down to earth attitude was really refreshing. The philosophy behind the workshop is simple.  Learn all you can do with just one light, the use of some different modifiers, and full manual settings and master it.  Zack goes through all of his modifiers, lighting equipment, and techniques in a very hands on manner with a small group (there were 12 people in our workshop) until all of your questions are answered…….seriously…….we were there until 3am.  This workshop was money well spent for me.  I would highly recommend his workshops to any intermediate level photographers out there, but you better sign up early…….all of his workshops are selling out.  Enjoy the pics!
