Photographing beautiful landscape and nature scenes is definitely my first love when it comes to photography, but I do enjoy photographing many different subjects. I’ve always wanted to be able to take good “people” pictures so this past winter I joined a studio photography group to learn how to shoot portraits in a studio as well as in an outdoor setting. Given that I’m used to hiking to some remote place in the wilderness and dealing with constantly changing weather and lighting conditions, insects and animals, shooting in a studio was a very different experience! Thus far I’ve attended 3 studio sessions and have learned the basics of setting up the lighting as well as working with various backdrops and props. Each session is held in a fully equipped professional studio and includes an experienced studio photographer and model to shoot with. I have several other sessions scheduled that will give me experience shooting outdoors with portable lighting. I’ve had a great experience so far, and best of all I’ve learned a lot. I’ve also met some very talented and creative people. Below are some examples of my work so far, I hope you enjoy them!
