It’s hands-on day at On The Road Atlantic City, and that means one thing: Live shoots.
It’s so inspiring to see some of the photographers we follow in action as they divulge their shooting secrets–their light settings, how they frame a shot, how they pose their subjects–and break down the complexity of the process into simple, doable steps.
From Doug Gordon asking a model to lay on the floor and “spread it,” to Chuck Arlund’s detailed explanation of when to use broad light vs. short light, each photographer brought his or her own style of shooting and arsenal of tricks.
What was also awesome about the experience was the amount of time instructors were able to spend with attendees. At one point, Jerry Ghionis could be seen in an intimate pow-wow with six or seven photographers, just talking shop.
We’re a little biased, but this was a great two-day event. Intimate, informative and not overwhelming in size. See you July 15 and 16 at the next one in Los Angeles!
