You need to get the technical out of the way so you can get to the creative — Scott Robert Lim
I had the privilege of working with @daynanicole and @LyricRochester, make-up artist, recently. Two fun and easy going people.
“What’s my style?” This Has been the question plaguing these last few weeks and I’ve been over thinking every session since.
I started out with natural light, progressed to continuous lights and now I’m using speedlights. It’s been a struggle striking the creative balance. The last engagement session I did I wasn’t sure what I wanted so asked around. Fortunately I got some good advice from @salcincotta and @ZachandJody, though there are still a few things I need to work out artistically.
The post processing techniques used in this photo aren’t what I’d typically do but I like the end result and I’ll certainly be experimenting some more until I find “my style.”

We’re running a promotion for the next two weeks called Headshots and I decided today that I’ll be using a two light setup that gives me multiple looks with little hassle. This was one of those looks using clamshell lighting.
The week past has been one filled with photographic experimentations. I ventured outdoors again and I tried a new editing style. I still have a few loose ends to tie up and they say “practice makes…”
Sweet! My Canon T299 Speedlite works with my wireless flash remote trigger system, which I recently discovered… so I did a 3-point light setup with speedlites, something I’ve done before with continuous light. I even experimented a bit with the edit… and I likie!

Most of my photographs are taken indoors when using artificial light, where I have control. However, I decided to challenge myself and went outdoors recently … I must confess I still have a lot to learn but I’m determined to get a grasp on using speedlites outdoors.
