Yesterday's Women of Perfection convention was a great success! Congratz to my friend, Moses Marquez, and his crew, for putting together a terrific event. The big room with all the models and attendees was packed! Somehow, I never managed to go into that room. Go figure, right?
The workshop I hosted, I think, went quite well. Those who attended seemed to be having a good time and, hopefully, I passed on some tips and advice that will help them with their pretty girl shooting. Moses, the event's promoter, provided us with an awesome model, Maureen Chen.
Here's a couple of observations:
First, the majority of the photographers in attendance were hobbyists. The majority of those hobbyists also appeared to have better gear than I do! Leastwise, when it comes to cameras and glass and speedlites. What's with that???
I discovered I really enjoy running a workshop. It has re-invigorated my goal to start producing them. I was even semi-prepared! I had an outline AND a two-page handout! How's that for being a quasi professional instructor? While I didn't snap a single image--didn't want to horn in on the shooting time of those attending--I thought I played the role of photo-coach (during the shooting portion of the workshop) fairly well.
Anyway, thanks again, Moses! Had a super time. Looking forward to the next one.
The gratuitous eye-candy at the top is Devon from some time back. Snapped it at a location house in Huntington Beach, CA. Keeping platinum blonde hair from blowing-out is always a bitch. Just sayin.
