Back Light vs. Front Light
It was late afternoon, we were shooting next to a small stream with sun-light making it's way to us through small patches of space between the leaves in the canopy of trees overhead. It was our first time together and this was the perfect spot to experiment with lighting and moods and poses and clothes.
It’s hard to believe that Leonardo Davinci painted the Mona Lisa over five HUNDRED years ago. What better example of the brilliant use of a single, prominent triangle to create a stunning and simple composition. But wait you say, “That’s not a triangle, all the corners are cropped out.” Well, guess what, an implied triangle is just as strong as an actual triangle… and if that doesn’t satisfy your naysaying read the evidence which suggests (and I believe) Leonardo’s masterpiece was originally larger, and probably included the entire shape.

Two Day Photography Workshop. Oakley, Utah
I received an email from Skip Klein, a photographer from Maryland, and who had some fabulous property in the Utah mountains. He wanted to offer us use of a private lake, horses, trees, and cabins, and one gorgeous tub to host our next photography workshop.
An offer we couldn't refuse! About a dozen Photographers converged onto a couple of acres of property in Oakley, Utah where we challenged the attendees to create images that showed their individual styles as photographers with styled models and several different lighting setups.
