Even if you've followed me for just a short time, it should be obvious I'm a huge fan of education, especially when it helps artists raise the bar on the quality of their images. It's also one of the reasons why I love writing/sharing "Wednesdays with Westcott" because the WestcottU site is jam-packed with educational content.
Check out the way they've tied together educational support with their top five creative tools for wedding photographers. Each one links to a well-respected photographer and often an article on how they've used the product to capture some spectacular images.
With just one article on the WestcottU site, you've got the work of five different respected photographers and educators. Each one shares how they're using the specific product to capture stunning images, and all in the wedding category.
Photographing a wedding is one of the most challenging specialties. As an artist, you have minimal control over the location, your subjects, and most often the quality of light. Westcott never slows down in their efforts to manufacture the tools you need to control light and create images that exceed client expectations.
Click on any five of the images in today's post to link to the specific product used to help create the photograph. And remember - purchase through the link on any image, and 10% of your purchase goes to one of the industry's most recognized non-profits, Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. As a Westcott affiliate, we're giving up our commission to this wonderful non-profit through the end of this year.
For other outstanding lighting products that link to fund-raising, visit Westcott through the door at the bottom of this post! We're sending our commission to NILMDTS on anythiing you purchase from Westcott.
ClickCon was AMAZING!
It's rare that a first year conference has the power that ClickCon brought to the industry last week. Great speakers, a busy trade show and 1300 attendees loaded with a passion to learn and grow. Put the show on your radar so you know the dates for 2020 when they're announced!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started. Click on the link above and you can scroll through all of the episodes to date.
