Lighting 101 MINNeSHOP Recap!

Last week, we hosted a MINNeSHOP and the topic this time was all about Lighting 101! This was a two-day mini-workshop that was SO much fun! We had the best group of photographers sign up!Day 1 took place at the 331 Club, one of the best (and darkest) bars in town. This was the perfect location to practice using our speed lights! Reception lighting is hard, especially when you never know what the lighting situation will really be when it comes to venues. Some have gorgeous natural light with white walls and other, well, are simply dark black holes. As professionals, it’s up to us to create gorgeous images, regardless of the situation, and we can never practice enough! Day 2 was all about studio lighting! We hung out at 514 Studios for the day and set up various lighting stations where the attendees could practice their little hearts out and mainly, see the difference between various lighting techniques!

It was two days filled with cocktails, learning and a hell of a lot of fun! Below are some fun images from the fabulous attendees!

MINNeSHOPS are designed to be mini-workshops, centered around a specific topic. I hold these a few times each year and I just love hosting them! We are always looking to hear from photographers on what you would be interested in learning at a future MINNeSHOP! If you have any suggestions, feel free to e-mail me:
