Workshop Intro with Alex
We're alive from Montana for a very special workshop about a very special person, Forrest Mankins. Him and I have been shooting the state of Montana for the past five years I think now, we're getting old, and I've been wanting to make this workshop for two years now. Finally convinced him, finally had some time to pin him down late some dates and we have a pretty exciting schedule. Here's what we have planned out. This workshop is a deep dive into Forrest Mankins universe. The way he uses color, the way he uses props, how he builds intimacy with models, how he uses films such as digital, how he approaches all different mediums of photography. We've come up with this challenge, it's called the $500 challenge, and Forrest will show you how he gets pretty amazing results with a $500 setup. So 5D Mark II and a 50 millimeter 1. made out of the finest plastic. You will see how he achieves commercial great results with a cheap set of that, I mean, most of us can afford. You learn how he build...
s teams of friends, like almost parrots to create these concepts. Like you don't need a fancy crew, he'll show you how he lands up his friends and uses them to make his concepts come to life. Creating the moment is not something we talk about enough. It's good to go out sometimes and wing it, but if you're in an environment we have to be producing photos for a shoot or for your own portfolio, you don't wanna leave everything to chance. So what Forrest talks about a lot is how to recreate these moments, come up with this concept and make this photo that is so intimate. So I'm very excited to introduce Forrest to our little community, the StrohlWorks community, we've been building. Hosted by my good friend Forrest Mankins welcome to Creating the Moment.

We're gonna learn how to go from getting good images to creating photos that people are actually going to remember. (suspense cheerful music)
