We dressed to the nines and photographed each other at Highland Park in NYC.
This event was for studio photographers of every skill level to come out and have some fun among their peers. Relationships were formed and portraits were made under the circumstance of challenging light on a chilly evening in late October. The air was filled with creation and teaming. After a little introduction, these participants adapted to the purpose quickly of not only photographing, but being photographed and directed, they left with a greater understanding of how a client may feel and maybe a new tip or two. They took on the lighting as a challenge, we had 2 IceLights, 2 large reflectors, some brought speed lights and the awful street lamps. But this lesson wasn’t about lighting so much. It was all about capturing expression and directing poses. Lori was in awe of the scene unfolding and pulled out an iPod in the moment to capture some behind the scenes. See video in this article.

For the first PhotoWalk (changing the term to portrait soireé for 2015) we reached out to some incredible sponsors to support prizes.
We greatly appreciate the support of these fine companies.
Thank you from Lori and Photo Communiqué
