This image was taken just a few days ago at my workshop in Oklahoma which was AMAZING! We were out from 1pm to 11pm and we even encountered a massive storm that threatened tornadoes...but we made it and had a blast doing so.
This image was taken towards the end of our shoot in Earlsboro. One of the reasons why I many times extend my workshop beyond the hours that my attendees pay for is because if I feel there is a teaching opportunity for light I'm going to teach it.
This shot for example was taken at 8:07pm on Wednesday when technically we were supposed to all be dropped off and back at the hotel by then. But I'm not a stickler on the time for my workshops because I truly do love teaching and helping newer photographers...looking for those "AHA" moments where the light turns on for them.
In this set it was particularly rewarding because this bride's photographer (Peggy Hogan) had the light turn on for her as she learned how to shoot in low light situations with the Rotolights. I live for these moments and fondly remember celebrating it with Peggy when it happened. It's so rewarding to help others improve...:)
I have a production image of this shot as well as video so I can show you how it was shot that I'll post later. This was in front of an old abandoned building and later on the owner let us inside to shoot...AWESOME! Gotta love that Oklahoma hospitality!
