Justin & Mary Lighting Intensive Chicago

Justin & Mary Lighting Intensive Chicago

September 6, 2012

Last week I had the pleasure of helping out with and attending Justin & Mary Marantz’s Lighting Intensive here in Chicago. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate their willingness to answer questions and generosity of knowledge. Seriously. We started classroom style talking about directional light (and a million other really important things)and then we got hands on with our flashes and figured out how we want to use them…and adjusted settings…and adjusted settings…and then magic happened. Highlight. Shadow. Soft fill. I promise there’s a full post coming next week explaining exactly how we (really Lauren) got there.

and then Justin set up the really pretty octabank and we took some gorgeous pictures of KT & Josh Doesn’t Josh look so GQ!I was so happy to have two weddings last weekend to be able to implement a lot of what I learned right away! I can’t to show you how this impacts my work. Needless to say, if you ever get a chance to hear Mary speak, or learn from Justin & Mary in any way, take it. Seriously. Love them.
