I recently attended Laura and Easton's Reynolds #ilovelightworkshops 2 day workshop. I have been a big fan of Lurey Photography's talent and beautiful photography for a while now, so I was super excited to see they were hosting this seminar. But, I have to admit I was a little nervous that I was going to be a little lost, or in a little over my head, thinking I may not be far enough along in my career to benefit. Oh I was so wrong, this was the best thing I could have ever done for myself and for my business.
While the focus of the weekend was primarily on lighting and taking gorgeous shots, a bonus was really getting to know the business side of photography. And also the much needed kick in the bum to revisit blogging. From introducing us to time saving and organisational tools like pixifi, to having a mock first meeting with clients, it was obvious how much time and planning went into this workshop.
When it came to diving into light and off camera flash, the instruction could not have been more clear and easy to understand. Every question was answered and it turned into more of a group discussion than just listening to two pros tell us what to do. The models Laura and Easton had were great to work with, patiently letting us all take our turns at photographing and posing them any way we wanted. All while dressed in wedding attire and I'm sure uncomfortable for hours! They had a great wedding reception set up and professional hair and makeup artists for the models. As someone who knows catering, I can say, not one detail was glossed over. Easton checked out all of our photos and offered great advice /pointers to improve how we used off camera flash. They had written and sent us all the e-book "Lurey Photography #ilovelightworkshops" which they went through thoroughly so that it was easy to understand and we would have it as a tool after we left.
As two people with an extremely busy business and life, their hearts were all in at the Lurey Photography #ilovelightworkshops and it was obvious. This was a weekend I was sad to have come to an end and would drive the 4+ hours anytime to do it again!
