Jesse Tenorio (one of our attendees) literally threw himself in front of my camera while I was in the middle of a shoot, catch the next photo to see the shot he got! You can also read about his experience at the LYON-SHOP by going to his blog post about it, thanks Jesse!

amelialyon said:
Dani, I actually don't know of any specific books that teach off camera flash the way we use it. We learned from others and then added our own flare to it. I promise I'll teach it to you when you get to attend a LYON-SHOP:)

Hi Amelia! I would love to attend one of your workshops. But I live in Florida. Have you ever considered doing one in the east coast next year? I think I read a comment above that he lived in Chicago. I think Atlanta would be a good location.... for the east coast people to travel to. What do you think? Please let me know and I will be the first one to attend. Maybe you could do a post asking the east coast peeps about it. I'm sure you will get a good response. I know my friend and I will attend.

Santa Monica?! You guys have really been moving on up from good ole' Fullerton ... Lyon Shop Uno. To anyone on the fence -- GO TO THE LYON SHOP. I went before I ever shot a wedding (almost exactly a year ago) ... and what I learned from Amelia and Justin became the foundation for my business ... from post processing (it's changed a lot over the year, but I learned SO much about it at the workshop), to branding and client meetings and interaction, lens flare, shooting, I could go on and on ... but I already wrote 2 books here :) :)
