City of Brotherly Love

Wow. What a wonderful visit to Philadelphia, thanks so much to everyone for making me feel so welcomed. I just love Philly, what a beautiful city with warm and friendly people.

My visit to Philadelphia started off with a speaking engagement at the local chapter of the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) held at the "Power Plant Production Studios" in downtown Philly. I was simply overwhelmed by the turn out, it was my first speaking engagement at an ASMP meeting. I've been a member of ASMP my entire professional career, I never imagined that one day I'd be making a presentation at an ASMP chapter filled with peers and friends. I'm very humbled.

While in Philly I conducted 2 Small Strobes, Big Results Workshops at Eastern State Penitentiary. I added the second workshop due to the overwhelming response and sell out of the first one. Thanks very much for the wonder turn out.

I want to also thank our wonderful models, Lauren, Andrea, Don and Belito for there time and modeling skills, fantastic work.  

Here are a few of the images for our workshop at Eastern State Penitentiary,  I'll try to do another post regarding the approach to each of the photos at a later date.  I have an assignment to shoot later today and I'm headed to the mountains for a one night get-a-way for my sons birthday.  I'll be headed down to Santa Fe to teach my one week Small Strobes, Big Results workshop on Sunday.

Wonderful separation of the model and the background in the first shot. Between the lighting , focus and depth of field, you pulled her out nicely with out making her look like she had been pulled out of another shot.
Well done.
It would be nice if we could get you to Minneapolis sometime, either for ASMP or to run a seminar.

Great photos David.

I really like the 3rd one. I'm wondering how you took out the tungsten in the upper room at the top of the photo. Was there a gelled flash up there?

Hi David,

Can you tell me what the main light source was for the first photo (the woman in red)?
