Earlier this week photographers from across the nation converged on Rancho Cucamonga, CA for two intensive days of learning goodness at Promise Tangeman's house. Promise and her husband Brian were so kind to open their home to host one of my MJ2Day workshops, and it was the PERFECT space for teaching, learning and making new friends. They blessed my socks off by sharing their home with me and my workshop attendees and I couldn't be more grateful.
Parker the Goldendoodle had fun getting to know the attendees and trying to herd Dixie away from them -- haha!
I was able to stay with Promise and Brian for the week and I felt so cozy and welcome throughout my time with them.
Many an evening were spent in this hot tub -- including the last night of the workshop with all the attendees! So fun!
On day 1 we covered topics ranging from shooting techniques, to lighting, interacting with clients, posing and off-camera flash. A HUGE thank you to my friend and MJ2Day alumni Jeremy Chou for these behind the scenes photos! (All the unwatermarked images are Jeremy's.)
A big shout-out to our sponsors who lavished the attendees with all kinds of goodies!
We talked about finding good light for portraits as well as shooting in harsh light for ceremonies when we don't have the luxury of selecting beautiful light.
Dixie is a seasoned workshop attendee and enjoyed lots of snuggles.
Promise hung out with us a bit and served us Margaritas mid-day!
What an amazing first day! After our sessions, we headed out into the gorgeous light of the evening and did a mock engagement shoot where I was able to demonstrate all of the photography techniques that I taught throughout the day. Stay tuned for photos from that session soon!
