I had the chance last week to attend the OneLight workshop with Atlanta Music photographer Zack Arias. It was a long day (9:30 am till after midnight!) and I walked out with a wealth of information. I’ve been following Zack’s blog for the last year or so and when I saw he was offering a workshop in Columbus, I knew I had to go. His workshop is all about showing photographers how to work with one off camera flash to achieve amazing lighting no matter where the location. I typically shoot 100% natural light, so what I’ve learned will really add to the options I can offer my clients.
Here’s two shots of Zack in action at the workshop.
We had the opportunity to work with some great local models and walked around the Short North to find some interesting locations. Our models for the workshop were brave souls to be hitting the chilly streets with us as the sun was setting and well after dark. February in Ohio isn’t necessary the warmest time of year! Here’s just a few of the images I captured during the workshop.
Next up are two images of Tracey and I think I can say that everyone attending the workshop was blown away with her strength and amazing yoga skills. I was able to talk with her during one of the breaks and we quickly realized that we both grew up in the Youngstown area. I also found out that she teaches an endurance yoga class in New Albany. After seeing her combination of strength and grace, I was sold me on signing up for her classes. So if you’re in the Columbus area and you’re looking for a new workout, you really need to check the Tracey Gardner Method, but be warned, it’s not your typical yoga class!! Her classes are not stretching classes, she bases her yoga on strength, endurance and stamina.
I’m really looking forward to learning more about using Zack’s system and being able to offer more variety to my clients in their upcoming sessions! And for the other photographers that stop by my blog, if you have a chance to attend the OneLight workshop, I highly recommend it!!
