Dancing with Yervant workshop-what I learned

Santorini - Day 2<br>-Yervant in action 4

Yesterday, we had the workshop started. I was so excited to meet Yervant in person. There are 25 other wedding photographers from all over the world to attend this workshop. It is great meeting & sharing with them – some of them have experience over 20 years. It is so interesting to learn that some of them had very different background before they became a wedding photographer, like, IT consultant from Gartner, marketing staff from a soccer team, fashion photographer, commercial photographer, and even a flight pilot.

Yervant is such great guy, not only because of his great photos, but also his contribution to the wedding photographer industry. He is so willing to share his knowledge, he just doesn’t hide anything. And he tries to raise the standard and makes wedding photographer not only equal, but even better than fashion or other commercial photographers.

We did shooting from 4:00pm till 7:30 pm. We followed Yervant to shoot, learned the technique, then we shot. I loved this image the most for the whole day. It was the last shot of the day
it is just wonderful

He tried to select some very simple & ordinary places and explained to us that the most important is looking for LIGHT

    Great photos, Simon!
    I like the first one and the one "nice location".
    The first picture possess the mood of dusk from the background. The lighting on the model is just … perfect! I love the one "nice location" for the contrast of the young, freely walking lady to the old, static man behind her. Good ah!
