Just attended an informative and inspiring (to me) seminar/presentation by Derek Heisler. I also got to meet his pleasant wife Nicole who accompanied him tonight. Derek was introducing/demonstrating the capabilities of a couple of Elinchrom lighting systems, the Canon 5DSR and the Capture One software that he uses. In Derek's hands, this equipment made some very nice, very sharp detailed photos of his model, Mackenzie. He did a great job talking us through various ways to use the gear while demonstrating it at the same time, which is not easy to do.
Aside from the cool gear, Derek talked about how he got into photography and different aspects of his business and lessons he's learned along the way. Like me, he has a background in engineering so it was inspiring to listen to a successful right brain using engineer!
