We learned so much at the photography seminar, WPPI, that took place in Las Vegas. We can’t wait to start implementing everything we learned into our business! We wanted to share a little bit of our experience with everyone.
The trade show was a bit overwhelming, but there was so much great stuff to see. We felt like kids in a candy store! It was so nice to see tons of different album companies and to feel and see how the albums are in person. (Note Jessica feeling the album lol)
There were tons of cool products offered. We loved this metal gallery display.
There were a lot of informative live demonstrations going on at the trade show that were teaching anything from lighting to posing.
There were models showing off a light called The Icelight. We just loved it so much that we bought one for ourselves and can’t wait to start using it for our photos! Here are a couple photos we took of the models showing how it looks.
As soon as we got it in our hands we went outside and took a few tests of each other using it to see how it looks outdoors. It added a great deal of dimension and even lighting in open shade. It eliminates the need for reflectors and flashes for portrait sessions like seniors.
The next day we took it out on the strip after our anniversary session to try it at night. We can’t wait to photograph a senior or engagement session at dusk and put this thing to work! Not to mention how cool it will be for wedding end of the night shots. Here’s a photo I took of Jessica on the strip using The Icelight.
Since we were two months shy of our first wedding anniversary and since we got married in Vegas, we decided to book an anniversary session with a local photographer. If anyone is in Vegas and needs a photographer please contact Exceed Photography! http://exceedphotography.com/ Edyta was so great to work with and her customer service was right on point. All of the photos of us from this point on were taken by Edyta from Exceed Photography.
We had so much fun and can’t wait until we can go back next year. It really recharged us and got us so excited about our 2014 season. Bring on the weddings and seniors!
