Let There Be Light | Orlando Florida Model Photographer

This past week I had the pleasure of being able to attend a Lighting Workshop. Since I am primarily an on-location, "natural light" shooter, this was an area that I knew I could benefit learning more about. And, boy, was I right. I have had other photographers tell me that indoor studio lighting is the easiest to work with, but just looking at all the strobes, soft boxes and backdrops is so intimidating to me. I have always been of the mindset, give me a great outdoor location and great daylight and I'm good to go! So, getting to actually work with the indoor equipment was a treat and something very different than what I am used to.

It really is amazing what great lighting can do for your photographs. Many of the photos I took that night needed very little post processing work done on them, because of the great light I had to work with, to begin with. It really does make a huge difference!

I would like to extend a special thanks to everyone who made the event happen:

Girls just wanna have fun! This one reminded me of high school. Very 80's!

Love it! It screamed "black and white" to me!

Always awesome and much appreciated when the male models come out!

This model was absolutely adorable! I got her in some great "poses"! Fun, fun, fun.

Beautiful lighting on a beautiful model!

Is it just me...or doesn't she look just like Madonna back in her "hey day"? Doppelganger!

Love it! This reminds me of an old time movie for some reason! Simply fantastic lighting.


  1. Great work Nora! Thanks for allowing me to set the mood with music.



About Me

My photo

I am a portrait and fine art photographer, servicing the Central Florida area. I have had a love of photography for as long as I can remember. Having spent 15+ years of my adult life as a graphic designer, I knew I had a creative mind and a visual eye for things. While design was my forte, I always carried a camera everywhere, and somehow was the "designated photographer" at just about every event I attended. But, it wasn't until I picked up my first "real camera," a Nikon DSLR, in 2008, that I really knew photography was what I was meant to do with my life! I photographed everything in sight, after getting that camera. But, I knew early on that I was meant to photograph people. I just genuinely love faces! All faces. I could look at faces all day long. Faces are just beautiful to me. Doesn't matter the age, the color, the shape or the size. I find nothing more fascinating then faces.
