IN-CAMERA Photo Workshop with Zach and Jody Gray

Some of you know that I headed to Nashville last weekend (Franklin, to be exact) to attend an IN-CAMERA Shooting & Light workshop taught by Zach and Jody Gray.  So, for two days I joined about 20 other photographers in Zach and Jody’s home to learn about geeky photog tricks! 

Here are some photos from Day 1.  We learned to use an expo disc to get correct exposure and white balance IN-CAMERA.  Then, you don’t have to correct those things later in post processing.  Translation: This will save me tons of time when I edit!  We carpooled over to “The Factory” in Franklin to practice shooting and worked with four models – Lindsey, Steph, Elly and Micah.  It was so great to have Zach and Jody, along with some other folks, available so we could ask questions and practice.  I’m looking forward to using these techniques on photo sessions with my clients.ZachJodyWorkshop-1

The topic on Day 2 was off camera lighting which I haven’t spent much time doing.  I usually use only natural light on my shoots.  Zach and Jody taught us how to use off camera lighting to create some more dramatic photos.  It was fun to play and see how changing a setting on your camera would affect the final result.  Here are some images from the day!
