OneLight Workshop Images

MANY thanks to my Norfolk host Eleise Theuer and her sister Angela Stott for being such gracious and generous hosts and friends while I was in Virginia this week teaching a OneLight Workshop. I met so many fantastic photographers from Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, and Texas! Thanks also goes to Kussie, Kera, and Paula for being fantastic subjects for us to photograph.Here are a few more images from the workshop this week.

Here is a side by side image showing the available light we were working in and then how we can control the situation a little bit to make a better portrait.

The next one is from the night before at the OneLight mixer. There is no sweeter lovin’ than some bar lovin’!

At 1:30 in the morning we were in the front yard showing how we could use some off camera lighting during a bouquet toss. I’m sure Eleise’s neighbors thinks she’s even MORE crazy than they usually do! :)

    You never cease to amaze. Excellent work. That first one is gorgeous.

    Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent with us. I think what I enjoyed the most and have taken to heart is your philosophy (just stuff) and Edward Weston quote. The lighting information will take me to the next level, no doubt!

    You are a rock star!


  • Derek Lapsley said on June 9, 2008

    Great stuff!! I can’t wait for your next post! I love the first image.

    Your ability to breakdown difficult information is unreal. I only wish I had teachers like you as I was learning more about photography. You are such a wonderful humble person as well. It is nice to see that good people still win…

    Thank you everyone! And thanks David. Those are kind words that keep me going.

    To answer David Burke’s question about that boom in the third shot above…

    Hey David!
    That is a ghetto rig right there consisting of a Bogen superclamp and a monopod.

    I took the female brass stud that comes with the Bogen umbrella bracket adapter and screwed it on to the thread of the monopod. That made the monopod a lightstand at that point that the umbrella bracket adapter slid onto.

    Then I put the superclamp on the light stand and placed the monopod rig in that. I hung a small man purse on the other end of the monopod (opposite the light) to act as a counter balance.

    You can do the same precarious boom rig with another light stand instead of the monopod.


    PS – Thanks for all the blog love David! How you doing?
