Fun Shoot: Ashley & Tod | Part 2


Before the holiday madness, I took part in a Shoot Out with other local photographers. Our awesome engaged couple, Ashley and Tod, were great to work with and rocked it out in spite of having fifteen cameras in their faces. Plus a couple of flash strobes.

One of the great things about shooting in a group environment with other photographers is learning from each other. I’m still learning a great deal about off-camera flash, so this was an ideal setting to learn new tips and tricks. While I prefer shooting in all natural light, daylight savings time sometimes puts a damper on things. So off-camera lighting it is!

I love the way these turned out. Thanks again Ashley and Tod, you made this photo shoot so easy!

Off-camera lighting allows for some dramatic engagement photos.

I’m loving the drama of this shot, with half of Tod’s face in the shadows.

This shot was partially lit up by the theatre we stood next too. It was sweet.

I have no idea what “The Decade Club” is, but there were a lot of people going in to go see it!

I like how off-camera flash can spice up a session. While I love natural lighting, it’s fun to mix it up and try new things!

Happy Thursday!
