Model shoot on Sunday April 25.

Met two young women via Model Mayhem and shot at the Pagoda. Chose the Pagoda because the weather was iffy, and the structure would provide a porch if the rains came. The sun played peek-a-boo all afternoon until the clouds lifted. So we had a variety of lighting conditions to contend with. These young ladies were terrific to work with!

More Lessons From After Dark Miami

As mentioned earlier, a total immersion experience. I've already put t use some of the things I learned by watching and working with some of the more than 30 "mentors" who come to share some small part of their expertise in a workshop setting. Some of the most interesting lessons were in "finding the light. Several mentors, including Fuzzy Duenkel and Martin Graham-Dunn, emphasize the importance of finding light and then enhancing that light, often with reflectors, to get a pleasing result.

After Dark Miami

After Dark Education in Miami was the equivalent of Woodstock for professional photographers, a total immersion experience. Here are just a few of the images I managed to create while a part of this controlled explosion of 30-plus photographic mentors and 300 attendees.
