I had a fantastic time at the two-day workshop I hosted this weekend — I was really honored to have it sold out even though I announced it with less than a month’s notice. Even with that, people still came from all over North America. We spent a lot of time working on themes of using new techniques and expanding old ones to push yourself and keep your work fresh and exciting, so that it doesn’t feel like work at all. We started Day 2’s Shootshop with Brandon, and I wanted to show off that one of the purposes of a flash composite wasn’t just power, but the way that you can use it to shape light with a dramatic falloff. Somehow I managed to focus my Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 while staring directly into the sun.
