Rock Your Reception Lighting 2, The Wrap Up!

March 2nd, 2011  |  by  |  published in Featured, Shoot

Weathering impending storms and stomach bugs, we ShootStylers held our second reception lighting workshop in Worcester last week. The sold out affair was attended by a great group of photographers from New England and NY. We want to send out a HUGE thank you to all of our participants. It’s especially lovely to see repeat attendees from previous workshops of ours! We love the love!!

Each of us went over how we do our thang at wedding receptions, when the lights are low and the pressure to produce killer images is high. An informal lecture followed hours of hands on shooting and gear explanation.

Whether it’s Andree’s light on a stick twinkie technique, Jamie and Earl’s studio light bonanza, Stacey’s one light mood lighting, or Michelle’s  and my bounce-a-thon, we all manage to skin our cats our own ways and get the job done.

Joe Ciarca from Gamut Prints, the workshop’s sponsor, was on hand to display examples of his ridiculously awesome fine art prints. A big thank you to Mark Crosby for taking these behind the scenes photos!

We hope everyone had fun and we’re looking forward to seeing you all soon during our Facebook Assignment Series, social events or workshops throughout the year!

Behind the Scenes at Reception Lighting Workshop

September 1st, 2010  |  by  |  published in Featured, Mingle

We want to send out a big thanks to everyone who attended Monday’s Rock Your Reception Lighting workshop at the Grand Ballroom of the Providence Biltmore Hotel this Monday. We really had had a fabulous time hanging with you all.

At this workshop each ShootStyle member explained their individual approach to lighting receptions. As you might expect there was a lot of overlap in the the lighting basic concepts we all used, but how we applied those concepts to our lighting turned out to be very very different. The topics covered ranged from bounced on-camera flash to off-camera speedlites, to studio lights to light-on-a-stick.

The day started with an informal lecture session where we all discussed our lighting methods and showed examples of those methods in use with images from actual weddings.

After the lecture, everyone broke off into small groups for hands-on instruction. To make the experience as real as possible, participants learned each of our lighting styles using their own cameras connected to our lighting gear.

One of our goals was for each participant to have 1 on 1 time with each ShootStyle photographer, so that if they had any questions specific to how that photographer worked, they’d have a chance to get them answered.

And occasionally, folks got to take their thinking caps off and have a little fun.

Big shout-outs go to Nantucket photographer Mark Crosby for shooting these behind the scenes photos and to ShootStyle Alumni Alicia Williams for keeping us on time throughout the day.
