Last week Justin and I had a BLAST with all of our LYON-SHOP attendees at The Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach, California! This was a fun group and the day went by so fast with so much to say, teach, show, and shoot! At the end of the day we felt super grateful to everyone who took time out of their busy lives to come and learn from us. We hope that those in attendance were able to take back something from our LYON-SHOP to better their photography business/techniques and ultimately become successful!

Before I show the recap, we are holding another LYON-SHOP (Part Quatre!) in Las Vegas on March 6th, just before the big WPPI Convention and we STILL HAVE A SMALL AMOUNT OF  SEATS AVAILABLE!!! So if you are wanting to attend, hop on it fast and email asap and I'll let you know how you can go about reserving your seat for that day!

The Shade Hotel was very accommodating and it was the perfect place for us to hold our group.
lyonshop3_001.jpglyonshop3_002.jpgWe held two shoots that day, the first shoot concentrated on working with and posing your client, use of available light, and use of certain lenses for certain situations.

*Thank you to the lovely Jenn & handsome Will for being our models that day!

The second shoot was definitely my favorite part of the day. We demonstrated how to capture lens-flare, off camera lighting, multiply off camera lighting set ups, reviewed camera settings, and more posing.

amelia, i would love to know what lens you use to get super duper close to your couples.... i.e. the ahhhmazing black & white shot (#4 from the top). i find that my 50 1.2 doesn't always get as close as i'd like. :)

amelialyon said:
Mary, that photo was most likely shot with the 35mm's a fabulous lens and you'd be surprised at how close you can get to your subject with it!

mary said:
rad! that was my assumption! i'll have to give it another chance, rented it once and wasn't convinced :)
