I had a great time leading a workshop in Charlotte over the weekend for The Light Factory. TLF is a hidden jewel in North Carolina I wish more people new about. They have a great program and offer a ton of photo classes. You can find a schedule here.
We took to the streets on Saturday to create 10 different looks of one model. With the Democratic National Convention coming to the Queen City later this fall, security is tight and photographers are getting hassled. We choose to stay close and worked within a block of the museum. That was our first challenge; working with Katya, our Russian model that spoke very little English was our second challenge. Personally, I find that challenges like this keep photography interesting. No assistant, no make-up or hair artist and this was Katya's first time ever doing any type of photo shoot. Hit the jump to see the other nine images.
