This image was taken at my workshop in Tampa, Florida at the Don Vicente Inn in St. Ybor. It is a beautiful place and we had the awesome opportunity to shoot in it completely uninterrupted. For this shot our beautiful model Constance was standing on a table, we used my monopod attached to a video light to light her from up top.
One of the things that I value the most at my workshops is teaching people real shooting scenarios, not made up ones that are nothing like what I'd do on a real shoot. There are so many times I've attended workshops where they pull the model out into the hallway and 100 photographers try to get a shot….that's pretty worthless in my opinion. So try one of my workshops, you'll see and experience the difference!
