a few weeks ago I spent some time in Brazil to teach 3 workshops with 3 different groups of photographers. I’m not sure why I agreed to do that in the middle of the busiest time of year to shoot weddings, but I’m really glad I ended up going because Brazilians are fantastic people to be around.

we experienced pouring rain and hot sunshine, but shot through whatever the weather decided on… and in the middle of the day when the light was unforgiving.

for workshops, it’s important that people observe my methods of shooting in difficult situations because anyone can take a decent enough photo at sunset. the groups were large so I took a few iPhone photos of where we weren’t able to fit everybody in thought it would be helpful to include them at the bottom of the post.
