After Dark Photography Education – St Louis, MO – 2013
Anyone who regularly followed the Tangents blog during the past year or so, will know that I’ve raved about the After Dark events that I attended (and presented at). In my opinion, After Dark is the best (and most fun) learning experience that I’ve encountered.
The one After Dark event that was announced for 2013, was held in St Louis. As before, I did several presentations and I’d like to show some of the images that I shot while here.
The pull-back shot to show how the video lights were positioned:

This photo was from the workshop on using the black foamie thing and bounce flash. Check this link for the comparison on bounce flash with & without the black foamie thing.
I also repeated this photo of Megan with the Fuji X100s (B&H), so you’ll see her again in another article on the Fuji.
You’ll notice that the images here were all shot with the Nikon 24-120mm f/4 VR (B&H). I wanted to travel light when I flew to St Louis. Therefore my laptop was a MacBook Air, and I compromised on my lenses, by only bringing the Nikon zoom with the more expansive focal range. Even though the Nikon 24-120mm f/4 VR (B&H) has a slower aperture than I would ideally like, the vibration reduction helped off-set the slow shutter speeds.
Again, if you would like to attend the most vibrant photography event, then check out the After Dark Edu website for future info.
