Yesterday evening was the Nashville Westcott Top Pro Tour stop and we had such a great time!
It was held at Dury’s Downtown Pro Shop here in Nashville, and the turnout was great. If you ever need anything photography, Dury’s has it, and the man you need to talk to when you hit them up is Nick Coury. Nick is passionate about photography and photographers and is a great new addition to the team at Dury’s.
So without further ado, here is a little recap of the event!
The room set up and ready to go just before the attendees came in…
We talked through some of our lighting techniques, and then did some Online Media marketing as part of our workshop (image courtesy of our awesome model and friend, Elly)!
We then headed outside to do a live demo and show everyone how we shoot on-location lighting images. (First two below images courtesy of Ron Rice).
We took a before shot here in the parking lot behind Dury’s to show what the existing light looked like.
Then, we set up the strobe, took another shot and this is what we came up with.
Amber from Westcott was on-location with us shooting video of the entire event! This is the woman behind the Top Pro Tour and she has been amazing!!!! They shot video of every stop on the tour and you can purchase all 30 hours plus of every speaker from 26 cities on the Westcott site! Pretty cool!
David Piazza was also on-location and taught lighting and technique to the crowd. The below shot is of him taking some iPhone 4 footage of when we were doing our on location demo. When he taught after us he showed how you can use Westcott’s constant lighting and talked through lots of other super cool shooting stuff!
