How to overcome your fear of lighting- and use the craziest of light to your advantage. 

Do you panic when shooting outside of golden hour?

DON'T WORRY. You're not alone, I did too. First look at three pm? FORGET ABOUT IT. That used to send me into a complete and utter panic- I needed golden hour or overcast skies to complete my images. Flash forward to now, I live for midday lighting. I love harsh lighting. I'm bored at golden hour, and I look for any chance I can to introduce harsh light back into my client's galleries. I want to help you do the same. 

So what's this workshop?

If you fear inconsistent or "different" and harsh lighting - THIS ONE'S FOR YOU. We'll be shooting both a model, and a couple waaaay outside ideal lighting time. We'll be starting at 9:00 AM at the Great Saltair (outside SLC)- sunrise is right before 6 am, so we'll be shooting 3-4 hours outside of that beautiful, creamy light you usually like. We'll walk through how I trouble shoot "nasty" lighting, how I pose my couples to gain the best perspective and lighting possible, and how I use my lighting to portray a specific mood and dynamic. 

 This image was shot nearly 4 hours prior to sunset. 

So why?

If you're going to be any sort of wedding, event, or portrait photographer, you need to learn how to master lighting. Shooting hours prior to sunset? Great. This image on the left was shot at 2:30 pm. It's time to create dreamy, creamy, imagery regardless of the lighting you're provided. You shouldn't panic when shooting outside what you've been told is "ideal" lighting time- you should be excited to create unique imagery!

So what are the details?
