Riverside & IE SmugMug – Studio Lighting Workshop   Leave a comment

I attended the Riverside & Inland Empire SmugMug meeting this afternoon in Rivserside, CA where the topic was on Studio Lighting. It was more of a photographic educational workshop than just a meeting.

One thing I learned from this workshop was that “cowboy studios” (a type of wireless flash/light trigger) were incompatible with my hotshoe converter (thanks to Sony for being different from Canon and Nikon). Pocket wizards (another type of wireless flash/light trigger) work just fine with my hotshoe adaptor. Some things just aren’t meant to be! But nevertheless, learning about studio lighting is fun and I can learn how to direct models better when using studio lights. This makes me want to go get some pocket wizards and studio lighting so I can experiment some more. Who wants to play with me?

Kellie and I had been friends and talked about doing a photo session together for awhile now. We finally got a chance and recently went to a train station in Fullerton for a photo session. We had fun and talked non-stopped.

As we all know, Japan was recently hit by an 8.9 quake followed by several tsunamis and aftershocks. After the 8.9 quake, Northern Japan was hit by a 7.2 quake! This makes me want to cry for them. It’s very devastating and heartbreaking!

I’m offering 30 minute portrait sessions to those who donate $25 to Red Cross to benefit the Japan Earthquake Relief. Sessions include photo CD with 10 to 15 digital images and one 8×10 print.
