That time of the year!
Well, I'm headed out to WPPI again this year. WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) is the annual gathering of professional photographers from around the world. They gather in Las Vegas and talk with each other, compare notes, go to seminars on lighting, posing, social media. There is also an expo where you can buy cool new camera stuff! Such as the tiny light cube I bought and then used to back light this guest gift at a Windsong Wedding.
I also turned a wine glass upside down, used the base to showcase these wedding rings and used the cube light to fill in light from below.. I love that little light!
So what is on the hit list for this year? I am checking on the Profoto B1 remote flash. I have two flashes for off camera work such as below. But the Profoto will give me......POWER! I can over power the sun with it!
Ultimately I love going to WPPI, it fires me up for the rest of the year. I come back wanting to try new techniques, use new equipment and give event client their money's worth when they hire me.
Let me know what fires YOU up!
