Lighting the Editorial Portrait Workshop with Andrew Eccles

Last week I took a lighting workshop at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops with Andrew Eccles.  My intentions were to grow my technical knowledge of lighting an editorial portrait as well as explore expanding my scope and style of shooting.  I feel I accomplished both, especially the latter.  We played around with simple studio portraits, shooting in the desert, creating more cinematic-like images, and motion photography.  Andrew is an incredibly wonderful teacher who really cared about the success of all of his students; I feel so lucky to have worked with him.  I also met some other amazing photographers whose creativity and passion were both nourishing and inspiring.  Excited to share some images made during the week...! Hope you enjoy. All images ©rebecca stumpf 2015.
