More from the workshop...

This part of the workshop was indoors in an amazing mansion.  We worked with ONLY natural light and our mentors helped us concentrate on shooting our images with the intention of editing them purely to black and white.  I am in love with the soft lighting on the little blonde girl's face and her very natural expression. 

If you liked the first image from my workshop (the previous post), there is more to come!  Just be patient... I'm in the middle of packing.  We're moving next week!  Yahoo! 

Oh, yeah... by-the-way... we won't have internet for about a week.  If you need to get a hold of me, please use my cell...801.783.7124

Thanks everyone!

Mentoring Session!

I cannot tell you just how much fun my mentoring session was yesterday!  I feel like I learned some invaluable lessons that will help me grow as a photographer.  Besides, it was fun to mingle with very talented ladies.  I can't wait to incorporate my new techniques with my clients!  Here's just a quick preview for now... I'll post some more from the workshop ASAP.

Looking Back....

I have the awesome opportunity to be mentored by 3 amazing photographers in just a few weeks.  In preparation for this event, they have asked me to prepare my portfolio for review.  As I have been "thumbing" through some of my favorite images of the past few years, I couldn't help but re-edit this beautiful photo of stunning Yukia.  I can't believe just how much I have learned since I shot her wedding.  Tell me what you think of the difference between these two photos...I am just so excited to be learning, every step of the way.  I can't wait to see what this mentorship has to teach me!
