Another wonderful workshop week.

I get a little giddy putting together these posts and showcasing the work of our fabulous participants in the Finding the Light Workshop. I hope it gets you all excited to join us for the next one. Speaking of which – the next online natural light workshop will be the winter workshop and will most likely be starting at the end of January or beginning of February 2012. Keep a look out on the blog for updates on that. 🙂

Now on with the show.

Week 3’s assignment is about using the same delicious backlighting techniques students learned during the previous assignment, but for week three we ask them to throw in the addition of a reflector. Love or hate the reflector when it is used well it produces some stunning results. As you will see from the images I spotted on the forum this week.
