PSD Experience

I’ve always wanted to attend a workshop to learn & improve my photographic skills, as well as meet other photographers. I finally had the opportunity at the PSD Experience. PSD stands for Photograph • Share • Discover.

The amount of education available was incredible and it was difficult to pick the program I wanted to attend each session. For a few sessions, I split time between two programs. Whether your primary focus is seniors, weddings, or pets; you have a big studio or a home studio; shoot natural light or use strobes & off camera flash, there was something for everybody. The education continued when the free shooting sessions began at midnight each night.

I really enjoyed my first workshop and can’t wait for my next one. It was great meeting all the other photographers from around the state and beyond. A special thanks to all the educators, models, stylists, hair & makeup artists.

I’ve posted a few quick edits of images captured from the event. I’ve also included a 2 minute behind the scenes video taken at the event. I attached my Flip MinoHD to the hot shoe of my Canon 5DMKII using a Manfrotto 482LCD. This way I could take photos and shoot video at the same time. You can see the lens hood when the Flip isn’t zoomed in a little. In the future, I hope to try using the 5D for shooting video. The video instructors were amazing as well.

I had so much fun, it was worth not getting much sleep for three days. Be sure to stay in touch. Until next time.
