It’s been a busy start of the year for me – but busy in a super-fun not-in-the-office kind of way. I started 2010 with an awesome wedding photography conference in Mystic, CT. As well as getting to listen to speakers such as Jerry Ghionis, David Williams and Joe McNally, I got to hang out and photograph with the radtastic ShootStyle crew. Yeah! We met up on Saturday afternoon and worked in small groups, each group taking a different model. We totally lucked out by getting Bryn – not only is she absolutely gorgeous but she was willing to stand around in the freezing cold snow while we photographed her. Thank you, Bryn!
I loved the spots we found around Olde Mistick Village. The bright blue wall of the aquarium provided a much-needed shot of color (it was very gray that day).
One thing I love about group shoots like this is that you can play around with techniques and equipment you don’t usually have time to. After playing with my 85mm lens I switched over to a tilt-shift lens, which I used to create the next two images.
For the last two images above, I decided to see how my 60mm macro would work as a portrait lens – because sometimes you want to get really close in … and I love how it worked out!
I’ll have a couple more indoor shots to post, hopefully later this week. Huge thanks to ShootStyle for letting me tag along, I had so much fun playing with you all!
