Have you ever had an obstacle in your way that you just couldn’t seem to get over? I literally have made multiple attempts over the last few years to learn studio lighting. I took a class and I swear I bought all of the gear they suggested…and it was terrible!
Every so often, I would get out the lights and try again, only to have it turn out badly, with tons of shadows and contrast.
So, for my birthday, I decided that I would get help and overcome this obstacle. I had the wonderful Caralee Case fly in from Idaho and teach me.
Within the first 5 minutes of instruction, Caralee helped me understand why those products were never going to give me the result I was looking for and helped me figure out exactly what I did need for my desired outcome.
Caralee helped me get over a huge hurdle that had been holding me back and frustrating me for years! When I saw the images coming up on the back of my camera, consistent, even, amazing lighting, I had to hold back tears because I didn’t want the model’s mom to think I was nuts! Caralee showed me first, then I did it on my own with her right there if I ran into trouble or questions. It was the most amazing experience! When Caralee left, I felt totally confident that I could replicate what I had done with her.
Thank you, Caralee! And a huge thank you to my wonderful models and my amazing OB who sent them my way!
