Santa Fe Workshop "Small Strobes, Big Results"

I'm currently teaching at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops in Santa Fe, NM. We are into our second day of the workshop and we're having a blast. I have 14 excited students that are just loving there time here, and so am I!

This is my first time teaching a 5 day workshop and I just love it. I hope I have other opportunities to teach here. Apparently, the waiting list for my workshop could have easily filled an additional class. Wow, that just blows my mind.

The photograph at the top of the post was from a morning demonstration illustrating a portrait technique using only one SB-800 strobe and two reflectors. This beautiful young lady featured in the photo is the workshop assistant that has been assigned to my class, eat your hearts out Erik & Ian!

Really great lighting David. The reflector style you are using gives a very natural light feel to this, and is very complimentory to her face structure. I think though it is a problem using a model with such beauty, you could light her with a match and she would look good. And so you run the risk of someone saying she made your lighting look good. :-). All in good humor. Very impressive.

I must agree with Dave before - The result is awesome and the lighting is great, but is that all thanks to you or to the beautiful model? :)

I'm kidding.. Splendid image!
