People that meet me are quick to find out 2 things about me- I love to share, and I love photography. What could be better than a forum where you can do both? This past weekend I had an opportunity to speak to a group of photographers from the Atlanta area. Friends and associates from differing genres of photography came together at 1SO Studios to share techniques and discuss the business of photography. I would be remiss to omit that cake was involved. (My other love to a not-so lesser degree)
While I don’t typically do photography workshops, I found myself at ease in front of the projector explaining a particular lighting setup. The one thing that seemed to be missing was time, as I found that I can be long-winded in discussing the way we view color, composition, ambient light, and other subjects that end up on the camera’s sensor.
Although I find myself attending more workshops and discussions than I facilitate, the South Metro Atlanta Photography group made me feel at home and in my element. I’m finding myself spending more time structuring lesson plans as I thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and hope to have the opportunity to share again. I would like to thank Anthony Westmoreland for the use of his projector, Thomas Colvin III for the assist with the setup and imagery, Corey Wendell Williams for the behind-the-scenes footage, and Leonard Life’s Essence of 1SO Studio for the warm hospitality. And a special shout out to my newfound friend, Kennesha Powell, for catering to my weakness for delicious cake.
I’d also like to send a special thanks to everyone that made it out to the roundtable. You guys are the best.
