500px Stories and Critique - Lightenupandshoot
I have images scattered all over the internet: flickr, google+, facebook, twitpic, and 500px. But, I often tell stories in a series of images rather than post only one image. 500px has a nice feature called "stories" which is laid out similar to a blog format. I enjoy creating "stories" in 500px because I can elaborate on the technique and the experience of each story. I also want to point out that 500px's layout makes images look beautiful.
In this video I sit down with a fellow photographer and friend to go over a collection of portraits taken around the world posted in a recent story in the Lightenupandshoot 500px. In the video I talk about lighting technique, equipment used, the story behind the image and there's also a self-critique of my work. At the end of the day photography is about the experience and sharing that experience with the world. I also love shooting with others; be sure to visit me during one of my events in 2013.
As soon as I return from my two week journey from Colombia I will be posting my schedule for 2013. I plan on having several workshops and events that will be everything from free to elaborate travel photography. Stay tuned or go ahead and sign up to receive an email for the schedule.
