Find the Light – Magnificent Portraits in Any Light
Brought to you by Olympus and Delkin Devices

Join Olympus Visionary and Delkin Image Maker Joe Edelman poolside at the Hotel Indigo in downtown Austin for an evening of shooting swimsuit models.
Lighting doesn’t have to be difficult and even in the bright Texas sun there is beautiful light to be made using natural reflectors or handheld reflectors.  Joe will show you how to find the beautiful light to shape and flatter your model.  He will cover the art of finding good light at any time of the day.  How to recognize great backgrounds when you see them and how to turn a horrible background into a work of art.  Joe will also cover prep and posing of your subjects to create magnificent natural light images.
This workshop is a part of our Olympus Experience Weekend. Find the full schedule of events here!
