Part IV of this incredible workshop featured a wedding couple on the grounds of the Sunstone Villa in Santa Ynez, California. “The Wedding” was set in the golden light of these gorgeous grounds. The Villa, constructed entirely from remains of buildings torn down and imported from 1700’s Tuscany, offered a lush, european backdrop in the heart of California. The table-scape styled by the talented Joy Proctor featured gorgeous red tones and unripened figs and was nestled next to an intimate window-lit fireplace ceremony site. I’m so lucky to have been a part of this gathering of incredible talent and am so thankful for Kurt Boomer for bestowing his knowledge and experience on his students.

Part III of the fine art workshop hosted by the talented Kurt Boomer was a young girl, beautifully backlit catching butterflies amongst the olive orchard. The gorgeous ladder and unique butterfly catching nets were a great addition to this story. This selection was captured on fuji 400H.

Part II of this week we spent along side Kurt Boomer for his fine art workshop included photographing a man by a window in a dimly lit room. “The Painter” was a combination of using props and a subject to convey a fine art portrait that told a story. The challenge for me was to set this scene without the look of being contrived. I think we nailed it!

One of my goals for this year as an artist is to make time to shoot personal work. Not only for the mental break, but for the creative challenge as well. Part of this goal is not only to shoot differently, but educate myself in the process and experiment with mediums outside my focus. I chose to attend a workshop specializing in using film photography as a fine art medium. Although the term “Fine Art” has been a bit convoluted in the photography industry, I do believe that harnessing a fine art intention can achieve enormous growth as an artist. Especially those of us in the wedding industry. I’ll be sharing more from this workshop over the next few weeks and I can’t wait for you to see what’s to come. This series features a cellist Shot at Sunstone Villa at Kurt Boomer’s film workshop using a mix of Fuji 400H, Portra 800, and Illford Delta 3200 film stocks.
