As humans we continue to learn, either actively pursuing educational experiences or by learning as life happens! As a Photographer, one of my goals is to continue to learn to refine my craft, grow my business and learn about new products, tools and techniques! Luckily for me I have joined up with an awesome community of other photographers thanks to Carrie Swails of Photography Awesomesauce! http://photographyawesomesauce.com/?s=SEO
Carrie put together a Winter Photo Challenge on Lighting and I am a little late in getting my week one entry in...thanks Carrie for the pass this time! Part of the reason I am late with my submission is that I don't blog! Sure I have one but it has been dormant since 2009 and I can tell you it has been something that has been on my to-do list since then! Thanks to Carrie and the other Photographers in the group who have been posting away...on time I might add...you have given me the encouragement I need to JUST DO IT!
Here is my week one submission using natural backlight...which is actually one of my go to lighting techniques! Looking forward to the next 21 weeks and learning something new to bring to my sessions! I am going to try and post my pictures straight out of the camera (SOOC) so I can see my progress with shooting and not with editing! This image was shot with a 5D MarkII 70-200 mm f2.8L. - ISO400 200mm f2.8 1/2500
Thanks again Carrie for helping to build an amazing community of helpful and creative souls looking to further their craft and make some friends along the way
