I had the opportunity to attend an awesome conference in St. Louis this year called ShutterFest. It was definitely a learning experience & I can't wait to see where my business and my portfolio will be in the coming years. During the conference I attended several classes, mostly focusing on the business side of photography, however I did spend a day shooting with a few models.
Most of the images were taken outside in natural light. I was able to take a few using studio lighting. My favorite was Melanie Anderson's Ringlight. I will be purchasing one in the near future. I hope to open up a studio as well to offer senior clients are variety of looks and options.
