Photo Shoot Tips

Create the Wow – Make Your Portraits EPIC

Recorded at PhotoPlus 2019 in NYC

PhotoPlus Expo 2019 is in the books and once again I had the honor of presenting for Olympus at the three day tradeshow in New York City.

My talk was titled Create the WOW – Make your Portraits EPIC and it featured portrait photography and studio lighting techniques done with small strobes and also light painting techniques. All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X.

Olympus was kind enough to allow me to have the presentation recorded so that I could share it here and on YouTube.
