OC Smug Meeting Feb 2011 – Matt Saville   Leave a comment

After the mini-photog shootout at Irvine Park on Thursday evening, we moved onto the OC Smug meeting at the Outdoor Education Center that was within the park. The speaker was Matt Saville and the topic was “Key Elements That Make Up A Beautiful Portrait”. This was a fun and very interesting topic to listen to. I’m still learning composition, but it also helps that I’m more aware of the surroundings and background to make a better portrait. I left feeling very inspired and I can’t wait to use some of these elements in my next photo shoot.


Mini Photog Shootout – February 2011   Leave a comment

On Thursday evening, I attended a mini photog shoot out at the Irvine Park in Orange, CA. There were several photographers and models who broke into several small groups. I was only able to photograph Everlyn because I was having a nice time working with her. In this group with Everlyn, we were working on natural light while the other group worked on wireless trigger and flashes. I didn’t bring all of my flash related equipment, so I wasn’t able to work with that group. Everlyn is modeling for fun, so she doesn’t have a portfolio or website of her own. To see more photos that I took of her, click here.
