Workshop Photos that Made the Cut

Earlier this week, I mentioned that reader Caroline Maryan got two photos accepted in her iStock application… and that they were both photos that she took at our Stock Photo Workshop with Lise Gagné last August. I caught up with Caroline to see which ones they were. They’re great shots. Here they are…

Following Caroline’s announcement of success, Quebec attendee Kim Wilson wrote in to say that she, too, had some of her workshop photos accepted into iStock. I looked in her portfolio, and she actually has photos up from a number of our past workshops…

I love these shots because they’re all good, they’re all stock-worthy, and they were ALL taken at our workshops.

I was there for each of these, and let me tell you… not only is this not rocket science… it’s also a lot of fun. Yes, there’s a little magic that goes into it — a little glitter here, some extra light there… maybe even a smoke machine or some bubbles…

And you have to know what to watch out for, like clean backgrounds and good light…

But I wanted to show you these photos to prove that, given the right conditions, you and I can take stock-worthy photos every single day, if we want to.

It’s not that hard. And it’s even easier when you’ve got a pro there to set up the scene, bring in the models, and show you where to stand, what to look for, how to get the right lighting, etc. Someone to look over your shoulder and see how your shots are coming out… make suggestions… give tips.
