If you haven't visited Inspiration on the Profoto blog, you're missing a terrific opportunity to spend a little time getting to know some wonderfully talented artists.
Meet Meg Loeks, a Michigan based photographer primarily specializing in children and family. She's an artist, author, educator, a Clickin Moms Mentor and gets a lot of her inspiration from her children and the outdoors. "Meg is drawn to environmental portraiture, lifestyle photography, landscapes, low light and color."
And, like so many of you she's a natural light photographer and wrote:
As a natural light photographer, I am completely dependent on the weather, which we all know is never consistent. I often avoid shooting in the middle of the day because of the harsh and sometimes drastic changes in light. And then, of course, I constantly run into challenging situations, like not being able to shoot in certain areas of my home because I just don’t have enough light on my subject.
So, Meg went to work learning how to better control her environment and began working with Profoto's A1.
I was hoping the Profoto A1 would be both easy to use and capable of solving my light issues inside my home. The first location was just a simple space in our living room that lacked light, but it’s also one of my favorite spots in the house. It’s a perfect little cosy nook where I’m never able to shoot. With the Profoto A1, I was able to change that, creating soft, directional light on my son — something I believed I couldn’t do with flash.
