Portrait Photography - Lightenupandshoot Style

The lightenupandshoot style of photography started with a need to document my adventures in photography.   The camera to takes me on journies to far away places and unpredictable situations.  I photograph because I have to;  I push myself to capture how I want to remember the people I encounter.  Light is my initial  inspiration  followed by an energy created with my subject.

Breaking the Rules, Have Fun! - Lightenupandshoot Style

I'm in the middle of a world tour (tour dates here).  Shooting commercial gigs, presenting and having Lightenupandshoot Tag Along/Workshops (NYC, Dallas, LA, London, Amsterdam and Medellin).  I still have time to shoot for myself and shoot with photographer friends. 

 

This video is shows me breaking the rules so I can have more fun on the shoot.  I like the challenge of minimal gear to great interesting shots.  In this video I'm doing the unexpected:  using a cheapo ringflash for a main light and a wide angle lens.  What's sexy about that?  Hmmm...look at the images.

Approaching Strangers - Italian Leica Girl

Have you ever wanted to approach someone on the street but you are too scared?  Watch this video of how I would normally approach someone.  It's a lot easier than you think to ask someone to be your model, but if done incorrectly it will most definitely be disastrous.  For years I have been sharing my unique techniques on how to approach complete strangers/models for a photo session in my Lightenupandshoot workshop.

Behind the Scenes NYC (part 3) - Italian Leica from Lightenupandshoot on Vimeo.

 

Watch how simple and fun it can be.  While prepping for a shoot in Chinatown, New York, I saw a girl with a Leica film camera.  I was drawn not only to her camera but her sense of style.  I was curious about her, so within minutes I had her posing.  Enjoy.
