JVS Speedlights Workshop - DC

JVS hosted another information-packed workshop on speedlights, complete with equipment used for each and every setup and plenty of hands-on practice time for each attendee.  I took his workshop two years ago, and this is the 2nd time I've assisted, and I still pick up nuggets of information each time.  Joseph is a down-to-earth guy who is amazingly talented, and I feel truly honored to know him and his (also amazingly talented) wife, Anne!

Here are some BTS pics of JVS and the lucky students who took the workshop.

My sweet (and beautiful!) friend Megan Beth.  I was using the Bruce Dorn strip bank - one of my favorite modifiers!

Answering questions...

More instruction...

I'm a firm believer in constantly learning and pushing myself and my work forward, and I love seeing other photographers do the same.  It was a great day and a great workshop!  Also, many, many thanks to Drew Xeron and Ryder Haske for the use of their 52 O Street studio!
