If you guys didn't hear, we had another #allieworkshop last week!! #allieworkshop is something that I do once or twice a year. This month we zoned in on fashion photography with a focus on iPhone. I booked two of my favourite models, Nicki Palmer & Taryn Fitzpatrick, a location and had the best class ever! We had gorgeous clothing and the shoot was styled by Exchange on Germain!
This time we had two locations. The first location was Cedarcrest Gardens in Saint John. A shout out to their awesome staff for having us!
We shot in some great light at the gardens then headed on over to my apartment uptown, to work in some trickier lighting. I really wanted to show the gang how to shoot in two completely different lighting conditions. At my apartment we shot in a big empty room with 2 windows for natural light. Later on, we shot with a two light setup to compare the differences.
I wanted to focus on how good iPhones are for photography. Some of these photos below were taken on my iPhone, and even I can barely tell the difference.
On day two we met in the morning at ConnexionWorks to talk editing, retouching and color. We talked workflow, Lightroom and Photoshop and I showed the crew the steps it takes me to get from the original, straight out of camera shots, to my final images. We had a special guest from Oh La La Cosmetics speak to us about wearing colored clothing and the difference it could be making with our photography.
We had an amazing time and such a great, outgoing, interactive bunch!
Stay tuned for the next #allieworkshop. I am thinking December might be a good time! If you'd be interested in attending a workshop in December, email me and we can make it happen! firstname.lastname@example.org
