We just did a one day small strobe lighting class in my loft in NY where I will be spending the next two weeks guiding photographers into taking their personal next step. Both Madeleine and Isabela were out in the Saturday night scene practicing as seen above what they had learned from us during the day. I encourage photographers to “get personal” so even a one day tech class like this one becomes after all an exploration in doing work that is somehow a mirror of individual predilections.
The students who are here for a week, will take this process much further and show their work on this Friday evening at the loft in front of a cast of the best and brightest in photoland and let off by shows by both Chris Anderson and Bruce Gilden.
I will post work from time to time this week from this essay class. Stay tuned. You will see some very nice work shot right now by these very serious photographers.
