Jessie [workshop model preview]

Hey Guys! we have been getting a great response for the workshop and I have been rounding up some models for us to practice on and found a great location that hopefully the city wont mind me using! I can usually get away with sneaking around abandoned places but its a little harder with like 16 people =) There is like one spot left in the kalamazoo workshop and a few in the Dayton one so I am really pumped to have some fun soon!

Holly has really been nailing the editing process which is great for all you workshoppers! So without further adue, here is Jessie!

I don’t know why but I always like seeing pictures of people on shoots. So I thought I would share one of my own!

Wasn’t she great?! Now I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but this is a NON zoom, prime lens ONLY workshop! I may have someone bring a kit lens or even a pro zoom but only to illustrate how much better a prime is. Notice also that I am close to my subject using a 50mm. I have seen a lot of workshops where they all stand 10-20 feet back as if there was a line, but that is not going to happen in ours. You will be pushed out of your comfort zone to get different angles and get close, because primes loooove to get close!

Hope you enjoyed this! We have a hair and makeup artist come in from Detroit that is actually one of my brides so our subjects are going to look edgy and stunning! Get excited!!

p.s. I only put 10 on here because I dont like to log jam my blog but if you add me as a friend on facebook, you can see 27 of them! =)

    Hi Ryan,
    I am interested in attending one of the workshops. Is the Dayton one in MI or OH? Do you have any spots left for that one?
