Great Mixer Tonight!

April 1, 2008 | • Workshop

We kicked off the Atlanta OneLight Workshop with a great mixer tonight in our “still new to us” studio here in Decatur.  It’s always a good night when we can bust out the disco lights!


Here’s a classic one of our fearless studio manager, Erik, as shot by Jason Young.

Thanks to all of the locals who came out to join us in networking and getting to know other folks who are coming in from out of town for the workshop. I’ll post images from the workshop tomorrow!

Cheers, Zack

I’ll be honest. I used to hate Houston. I spent a good bit of time there when I lived in Texas and I never liked the city. Thanks to the amazing hosting talents of Janelle Lynn, I now love Houston! We had an amazing time there. Thanks for bringing the workshop out there. We also had some amazing photographers come out to be our subjects. Thanks Abel and Lisa!

You’ll find some more side by side examples of images comparing the available light and the lit shots. As I stated in an earlier post, this isn’t to show that the lit shots are “better” than available light images. You will see the difference though and off camera lighting (for me at least) is about having different options.There are quite a few more after the jump. I was quite inspired by the location we had to use! Houston has been redeemed! :)


OneLight Austin

Thank you Bonnie Berry for bringing the workshop to Austin! I like to show that images can be made anywhere. This first image was shot in Bonnie’s dining room. We just moved the table out of the way a bit and used the white walls and ceiling as a huge light source.

Now that the blog is done, I can get to work sharing some of the work we shoot at the OneLight workshops. Thank you Anna Karin-Skillen for hosting me in the Big Easy!

You’ll see a few side by side images here showing the difference between the available light and the lit shots. Now, these aren’t necessarily shown to show how much better lit shots are from the available light shots. There are are qualities to each. What I teach at the workshop is that lighting gives me control and options. If I was only shooting by available light then I only have one option. Adding light to the scene gives me more options.
