Portrait of Carolyn at Wacom Portland

I did an awesome workshop with photographer Jason Hill at Wacom in NW Portland in mid-April. We played with multiple different set ups, models and lighting types. It’s was so amazing the play with new mirrorless cameras from Pro Photo Supply and studio lights again since being in the photography and design program and The Art Institute of Portland.
