This past Saturday my photographer buddies Robert Stephani, Peter Chang, and I conducted a joint glamour & boudoir photography workshop at Studio 211 in Minneapolis, MN. We had a good turnout of photographers and 4 beautiful models to boot. Also, we had snacks/drinks provided courtesy of our own studio manager Gary of Top Photos--thanks, Gary! :)
The workshop went for a little over 5 hours. First, Bob and I gave a brief presentation of how we light (Peter was doing some setting up and filming). Then we each gave a brief description of our setups at our assigned bays (5 total different lighting setups), and photographers can hop around to each bay to practice/learn/shoot with any of our models. The photographers were free to move around wherever they wanted to try shooting next, and we encouraged them to ask questions and play with the lighting.
As for gear, we had a bunch of toys that the photographers could play with: Elinchrom, Paul Buff, Yongnuo, Westcott, Manfrotto, Lastolite, ProMaster, Honl, Lumopro, and more. We had cameras from Canon, Nikon, and Olympus (not including myself) --even an E-PM2!
Here are some behind-the-scenes shots:
Other photographers' examples (will be updated as I receive photos):
This entry will be continually updated as more photos from the workshop trickle in. Thanks to everyone who attended; it was a blast! We are already planning another workshop as we near Valentines Day...
