This past weekend, I went to a photography workshop run by Scott Church in Lancaster, PA. I had been to his workshops before and they’re absolutely invaluable for a beginning photographer. He goes over the basics (f-stop, ISO, shutter speed) and then goes on to explain how he does things and what’s important in his line of work (the model is always right, making people comfortable, framing, etc). After the basics are covered, the attendees go out around the location with models and shoot as much as they can with help from Scott. For me, the opportunity to learn new things and be able to work with models and get that first person experience is what really makes the class worth every penny. I mostly have done photography of flowers, landscapes, architecture and other such immobile things in the past – branching out to portrait and model photography is something entirely different since the subject matter isn’t usually just sitting around, waiting for you to stop by. Before I get to the picture, I’d like to post here that if you need a portrait, family photo, a little racy photo or two for the significant other, please let me know – while I’m building a portfolio, I work cheap (ie. free) and would be happy to work with you if you’re in the Philadelphia area. Now, one quick photo of Lorianna from yesterday.
