I love shooting in natural light. But I know there will come a time when I'll need to fully control the light, so I decided to enroll in the Studio Lighting 101 class at the Julia Dean Photography Workshops. Honestly, I took this class because I needed to, but was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It was nice to get everything figured out in advance and not have to keep an eagle eye on my settings like I do when shooting with natural light. This freed me up to fully focus on directing the talent, most of whom were actors, and really tap into their personalities. Having one-on-one shooting time was so much fun and I'm really proud of the images I captured.
