Morning at Yellowstone at a Jason Lanier Landscape Workshop

www.jasonlanierworkshops.com

This image was taken at my landscape workhop in Yellowstone in June of this year.  It is such a serene place, so removed from what we are used to in the modernized world.  I can't wait to go back!  We will be adding a few landscape workshops still for 2014, keep checking for updates!

Real Wedding Photography Workshops by Jason Lanier

This image was taken at my wedding for Mike and Jodi at my Real Wedding Workshop in South Carolina.  I used the #Rotolight Anova to light the dress, while placing the bouquet in the boots of the bride.  Can't wait for my next Real Wedding Workshop December 30th and 31st of this year!  Using the light from the Rotolight I was able to set my exposure down for the background in the window...

Kauai, a perfect place for dreaming

As the weather is cold for most of us in the Continental United States, I can't help but day dream of my time spent in Hawaii, and in particular the island of  Kauai.  This image was taken a while back while on one of my excursions there.  To see more of my landscape shots, please visit www.jasonlanierlandscapes.com.

Shooting through the blinds with a Rotolight

www.rotolights.com

This image was taken using my Rotolights at the Christmas House Inn in Rancho Cucamonga.  I used my great assistant to the left holding the Rotolight and shining it through the blinds.  Thanks to Charlene for doing such a great job!  I had all the lights turned off in the room and shot this well after sunset, so the only light source was the Rotolight.

Flapper Reflection...with my Rotolights

www.rotolights.com

I just loved doing this shoot.  The Christmas House Inn has such beautiful old vintage mirrors and by using my Rotolights, I avoided any flash or bounce back from the mirror.  Thanks to Charlene for doing such a great job.  Pick up your own set of Rotolights for Christmas.  There isn't a better, more affordable, portable video light on the market than than the Rotolight.

Flapper Girl Pin Ups with my Rotolights

www.rotolights.com

This is one of my favorite shoots in a while...I did this shoot with Charlene at the Christmas House Inn and Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga and it was amazing!  This shot is lit completely by two of my Rotolights, that's it!  I have so many from this shoot to share...more coming soon.  To pick up your own Rotolights for the holidays please visit www.rotolights.com.

I love swamps...in East Texas near Louisiana

For all the bad rap that swamps get for being stinky, muddy, hot, and more...they sure photograph well.  This is another shot from my trip to East Texas nearly 3 years ago.  If I ever make a movie, it'll be in a swamp...:)

Pin Ups at the Salton Sea

www.jasonlanierworkshops.com

I love pin ups, I love old rusted out structures like this one, and I LOVE this model.  Well, I am a little biased because this is my gorgeous wife...:)  This image was taken at the Salton Sea in California which is quite a site to see. Almost like it was built by Kevin Costner because it has the post apocalyptic world feel to it...it's awesome!

Finding Forgotten Photos...Sunset in an East Texas Swamp

www.jasonlanierlandscapes.com

As I'm continuing my image project for the cloud, I'm coming across some images that I just never edited...just got tied up with my other work.  This image was taken in East Texas years ago right after my workshop in Louisiana.  I wandered down into the area that you are not supposed to go into due to it being a tad bit dangerous, but that's never stopped me before so I went anyways.  I wanted to capture the sunset coming through the swamp, and I found this...hope you like it!

Sunset in Kauai...Heaven on Earth

www.jasonlanierlandscapes.com

Still finding images while doing my upload into the cloud with my entire image library.  This is one from Kauai that I took in 2010...just an absolutely beautiful place...:)

Camera settings: Nikon D3, 1/640 sec at f/11, 20mm at ISO 640, flash did not fire.

Catching the Sun through the tail of a whale...

www.jasonlanierlandscapes.com

As I'm going through my image organization project of getting them up into the "cloud" I am finding a few I want to share.  This image was taken during a whale watching excursion in Maui.  Yes, it's real, not a composite. Sometimes you just have to be ready when the moment happens, and that isn't very easy when you're being rocked around on a catamaran like I was for this shot....

Camera settings: Nikon D3, 1/2500 sec at f/6.3, 50mm at ISO 500, flash did not fire.  Taken at 5:40pm.

Let It Rain....in Chicago at a Jason Lanier Workshop

www.jasonlanierworkshops.com

This image was taken at my workshop in Chicago last month.  I LOVE the waterfall structure there at the park downtown next to the Bean, it's just amazing for photographers!  I used my Rotolights to throw some light on her from the front, and then used the backlights from the waterfall to illuminate the water.  A huge kudo to the model Irina for doing this is freezing weather!!

Triple S Harley Davidson

www.jasonlanierworkshops.com

This image was taken at my workshop in West Virginia last month.  My buddy Vanden King is the commercial photographer for The Triple S Harley dealership, and as such we were invited to do a shoot there during my workshop.  It was an amazing shoot and I can't thank Vanden and the awesome folks at Triple S Harley enough for their generosity in letting us shoot there!

Casting Love Shadows, a favorite from 2011

I'm currently working on a project of uploading and organizing all of the photos from my career into cloud storage. While doing so I stumble upon some shots that I just love and want to share..this is from Zach and Kelsey.  Zach is actually my wife's cousin, and I didn't shoot their wedding because I was not in the state at the time.  But they did a second reception in California and I couldn't help but create a quick shot or two for them...they didn't have a second photographer at the reception, so I just did a little shoot for them.  I used video lighting to the right to cast their shadow on the wall to the left.  Hope you like it! 

Photo Delivery Systems for Photographers- PASS

I get asked a lot how I share images with clients so I thought it would be fun to show all of this to you.  I use a system called PASS which enables me to share my shots with clients around the world.  I've been using them for about a year now and this map represents all the views I've had just from clients and their friends in that time span.  It's always fun to see where your shots are being seen and I'll occasionally click on this info tab with PASS to see where my shots land.  It costs $29/year to host your event, and it's an awesome way for data storage as well!

Slowing Down Time...in the Smoky Mountains

I love slowing down my shutter to capture moving water...it's such a cool thing to create special effects inside the camera, instead of relying on photoshop effects in post production.  This image was actually taken while it was pouring rain during my visit to the Smoky Mountains in August.  With there being nothing to photograph outside due to the rain, I went underneath the canopy of trees at this little stream to create some imagery as you see here...

Lighting with and ON a Rotolight

This image was taken at my wedding for Mike and Jodi for my REAL Wedding Workshop in South Carolina.  I placed the wedding rings on top of one Rotolight, and then propped up the other Rotolight to the side to give it more lighting.  To get your own set of Rotolights, please visit www.rotolights.com!!

Bridal Masquerade Masks

www.rotolights.com

I LOVE shooting with Masquerade masks!  This shot was taken at my shoot in West Virginia at an abandoned house.  I used my Rotolights with my 105mm macro lens.  Check out the reflection of the three Rotolights in her eyes!  I can't thank my assistants Vanden and Joyce enough for helping, and for my model Victoria Chewning for doing such a great job!

A Bridal Fall...at a Jason Lanier Photography Workshop

www.jasonlanierworkshops.com

This image was taken at my West Virginia Workshop last month while the fall leaves were still out.  It was a beautiful time of year, albeit very cold...:)  This image is of Brooke Shafer, one of the models from the workshop.  I told her to grab a bunch of leaves and just toss them in the air.  Love the look on her face and the leaves falling all over the place!

Tunnel of Love at Glen Ivy Hot Springs

www.jlpros.com

This image was taken at my wedding for Luis and Ana at Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Southern California.  It was a beautiful wedding, and we only had a little bit of time for the couple shoot.  So I stopped the in the tunnel that goes under the golf course and did the shoot.  There wasn't any room for my camera bag or an assistant on the golf cart so I shot this with just my D800 and an external flash, mounted on the camera.  I used the light on the ceiling of the tunnel to do the majority of lighting for this shoot.

Bridals in Chicago by Jason Lanier Photography

I just LOVE shooting in Chicago!  This image was taken at my workshop in Chicago last month.  It was cold outside but that didn't stop us from shooting.  We were able to sneak onto this bridge to shoot and it was just amazing.  Love the character of the entire city...

Love Never Dies...Ring Shots with a Macro Lens and a Rotolight

www.rotolights.com

This image was taken at my wedding for Manny and Aimee at the Christmas House Inn and Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.  I used a 105mm macro lens and my interview Rotolight kit to light the shot.  I placed the rings on top of program for the wedding which had a Day of the Dead theme...:)

Camera settings: Nikon D700, 1/200 sec at f/3.8, 105mm at ISO 320, flash did not fire.  Taken at 8:55pm.

Shooting a Fairy with Rotolights at a Jason Lanier Workshop

www.rotolights.com

This is a production image of my workshop in West Virginia where we did a shoot while it was cold and in the 30's of a Fairy in a barn.  I used back lighting with the Rotolight Anova and used my Rotolight Kits to light Brooke in front. To purchase your own kits visit www.rotolights.com today!

West Virginia Photography Workshop Group Shot Jason Lanier Photography

www.jasonlanierworkshops.com

Group Shot from my workshop in West Virginia last month.  It was freezing cold which was crazy!  We did a workshop a year ago to the day in WV and the weather was about 30 degrees warmer.  You never know what the weather will give ya.  Global cooling I guess.  I had a great time and was so grateful to spend it with all of my peeps in the WV!!

Fall Bridals in WV Production Image

www.jasonlanierworkshops.com

This production image was taken at my workshop in West Virginia late last month.  It was the last minutes of the magic hour so I ran the group out real quick to grab a few shots of our model before we lost the sun.  It was a gorgeous location, can't wait to go back!

Bridal Angel with the Rotolight Anova

www.jasonlanierweddingphotography.com

This image is of the beautiful Heather Mellie taken in Benwood, WV last month.  Using just a Rotolight Anova to light the entire area that was near pitch black, I shot this with my Nikon D800.  The rule with photography and shadows is this...either remove shadows from your shots, or really go for them which I did in this image.  To learn more about the lighting I use please visit www.rotolights.com.

Wide Angle Lens, Off Camera Flash, Abandoned Home, Beautiful Model = Awesome Shoot!

www.jasonlanierworkshops.com

What happens when you add all of those elements together?  You have the opportunity to get some amazing results.  Oh, and it helps having great assistants like Vanden and Joyce to help...:)  This image of Little Red Riding Hood was taken in West Virginia, one of my favorite places on earth.  Everything you see is real, it's not a composite, and it's a single capture with my Nikon D800, not HDR.  Off Camera Flash was triggered with my Pocket Wizards with the Nikon SB910 Speedlight.

Camera settings: Nikon D800, 1/100 sec at f/2.8, 14mm at ISO 64, flash fired.  Taken at 5:25pm.
