I was so lucky to snag one of the twenty spots for the Jasmine Star Workshop, before they were sold out that same day. Jasmine has been one of the key influences in my photography career and it was so wonderful to meet her and learn directly from her. Part of the workshop, was shooting this lovely styled shoot at the Dekalb History Center in Atlanta. I love historic architecture in general and am always fascinated at all the detail work put into the buildings.
The Dekalb Courthouse, did not disappoint, it's a beautiful place for weddings. The room we were in had gorgeous marble walls and a staircase made of marble built in the early 1900s. Let me tell you it was just as hot in Atlanta as it was back home in Florida. One of the challenges was to shoot at midday, when the sun outside is not as flattering and make the most of the outdoor and indoor conditions. Being a natural light photographer living in Florida I encounter this often and you learn to see locations for there light quality instead of how picturesque a spot may be. Every now and then you get lucky and a cloud floats by covering the sun, love when that happens.
