In April the “PSD Experience” came to Norfolk. This was one of those traveling road shows where the organizers brought together a number of mentors and presenters in the style of After Dark. The fact that it was in Norfolk meant that I had no option save to attend. Photogs seem to enjoy being presenters as well, because it exposes them, allows them to market their merch and their concepts, plus make a little slow season money.
I mostly attended sessions rather than studio or street shoots, although I did go on a couple. One such was led by David Beckstead, who has a stunning style when it comes to wedding photography. Beckstead brought his model onto the streets of Norfolk and posed her in a a dramatic and unconventional way that led off the beaten path bridal images.
The takeaway here is to use your yes, take advantage of unusual juxtapositions, and move the camera around.
