I was gone the past two weeks and it all started because of a little conference called WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) that was held in Sin City, Nevada, aka Las Vegas. WPPI is a combination of a trade show and conference where the best companies come to show their new products and the best photographers in the wedding/portrait business come to share their secrets. The trade show was a bit overwhelming at times with so many products and so many wide-eyed photographers, but I found some great new products and some awesome albums that I may start incorporating into my product line.
I sat in with several speakers but one that really stuck with me is Louis Pang. He is a hilarious and awesome photographer based out of Malaysia. The focus of his talk was Guerilla lighting which basically boils down to being able to use small speed lights to light on the spot with all the different scenarios we encounter in the wedding photography biz. You should check out his blog post on the talk he gave at WPPI.
