Last September I had the incredible opportunity to participate in a styled shoot out hosted by Stephanie Lemmon of LemmonMade Photography. My daughter was able to join us as well and acted as the Ringmaster! We both enjoyed the experience thoroughly – meeting new friends, spending a wonderfully warm fall evening together, and learning some new skills. The talent represented was phenomenal, from the make up artists, hair stylists, and the other participating photographers. It’s all in the details, and Stephanie thought of everything when she coordinated and styled this shoot out, even making most of the props herself!
For my local friends, I have exciting news!! LemmonMade Photography is going to be hosting a shootout in Traverse City this September with Mila Wells Photography! Check out all the details here on Stephanie’s blog – doesn’t it sound absolutely AMAZING?! I’m so excited and looking forward to another great shootout experience, come join us! If you are interested in participating please email Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up through the website link.
A shootout is a GREAT way to join in the fun of a styled session without any pressure. Observe, ask questions, find your groove and try new things! And when the session is done, you have amazing images that you can play with and grow your skills in post production, pushing the limits without worrying about experimenting on a paying client’s session! Even if you aren’t shooting for clients, it’s a fun way to join in a fantastic shoot with amazing details without having to make it all happen yourself. You’ll make friends and network, and inevitably learn from the other talented participants and stylists.
My favorite part was the series of Emmy as the “Lion Tamer” and Rogue, the most adorable Lion EVER.
