Pull Focus Film School // Lighting for Portraits

I have one more post to share today from my Photography & Writing course that I took at Pull Focus Film School.

We covered night photography and portrait photography with different lighting set-ups.  We only had 2 steady lights... and then had to position them a few different ways to create differnet effects for our portrait shoot.  

Here are a couple of my photos of Patrycja, who was our fabulous model for the evening!

Pull Focus Film School // Night Photography

For those that don't know, I am currently enrolled in a course at Pull Focus Film School in Vancouver called Photography & Writing for the Digital Age.

Yesterday our class had a chance to explore night photography!  We walked over from the school to our photography instructor's apartment (Adam Myhill) and were able to get a fabulous view of Vancouver from his roof top deck! 

Here are a few of my photos from class last night... I shot on a tripod, with a timer and locked mirrors.

Warkentin & Duncan Family // Tynehead Park

Saturday afternoon's session was with TWO families!  The Warkentin family and the Duncan family.  I'm excited to share their Tynehead Park session with you today.  :)  We had perfect weather and the kids had a blast running around the park and pathways...  Thankfully the rain held off and didn't start till AFTER we were done and walking back to our cars!

Eriksson Family // Tynehead Park Family Session

Sunday was a beautiful and sunny afternoon when I met up with the Eriksson family.  We walked over from their parent's house to Tynehead Regional Park and found some gorgeous spots and backdrops for their photos.  I love when there are fall colours start to come out and there are leaves everywhere on the ground.  

Here's a few faves of mine from our afternoon...

Hamm Family // Whistler Family Session

This family session took place in Whistler, BC.  The Hamm family spent the weekend in Whistler for Thanksgiving together and wanted to get their family photos taken at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler hotel.

The hotel was gorgeous and they were gracious enough to allow us to take photos inside.  We also braved the cold temperature a bit to get some great family portraits in the hotel's garden outside and on the green!

Thanksgiving in Whistler // Personal

On the Thanksgiving weekend, I had the opportunity to head up to Whistler to take family portraits for a client inside the Fairmont Hotel!  My husband and I decided to stay a bit longer after the family session and enjoy Whistler. We finally went on the Peak 2 Peak gondola, (it snowed while we were up there!), explored Whistler Village and spent a morning walking around Lost Lake.

Here's some of my personal photos from the weekend.  I've put off editing my personal photos a lot, especially this past fall, but all due to having so many wonderful clients! :)

Pull Focus Film School // Photography & Writing Course

I am currently taking a Photography and Writing course at Pull Focus Film School and last night was my 2nd class.  So far I am enjoying it a lot!  Each class is about 3.5 hours long but I still love it!   You get to "absorb" a lot of info in one sitting... 

We had a bit of time during class to play around with our cameras, so I decided to post a few candids...

Lena // Trash the Dress

It's Lena's turn to shine on the blog!   Lena brought along a lot of props and was willing to do almost anything for her Trash the Dress session in Fort Langley.  Even when I suggested she lay down on the train tracks!  (decomissioned tracks... not live). :)
We had a great time incorporating her props, teacups, photos and a fishing rod!

Katie // Trash the Grad Dress

This past weekend I organized a Trash the Dress shoot in Fort Langley, BC.  It was crazy....and fun!  I loved the opportunity to organize a shoot and enjoyed shooting alongside other photographers and getting to work with 7 fantastic models throughout the day.  We had 6 photographers, 7 models and we "took over" Fort Langley.  5 of the models I had a chance to work with individually, so each of them will get their own posts.... This post is all about Katie!  She wore her pink grad dress and looked like a princess!  Gorgeous eyes, gorgeous dress... and she even borrowed someone's dog for a shot when they walked by!
