Happy Monday! It’s that day of the week again—the one where we introduce you to a KelbyOne member and their work. This week, our featured artist is Adam Thornton. Based out of Colorado, Adam’s main focus is on portraits & wedding photography. The photo you see above is one of the images he created for a wedding.
1.) Can you tell us a little bit about your photo?
I took this image when I was second shooting a wedding for another photographer friend of mine, Josh Duncan at Vintage Sparks Photography. I have a lot of fun as the second photographer because I feel I can get creative and look for fun and interesting ways to capture the wedding. This image was part of the details for the day. To me, the details are part of the storytelling of a wedding. The wedding was held at Villa Parker.
2.) What gear/software did you use to create this image?
I used my Canon 6d and Sigma 50 mm Art Lens with a macro filter. The image was processed in Adobe Lightroom.
3.) What do you like to photograph?
My main passion is photographing senior portraits. Seniors are such a fun age and senior portraits are for most people the last time they will be professionally photographed before their wedding. I love capturing this special time for families.
4.) Were you inspired by a KelbyOne class or instructor to create this image? If so, which class or instructor inspired you?
I have watched a lot of videos on KelbyOne. However, I can’t point to any one class that inspired this image.
5.) What’s your favorite class on KelbyOne and why?
My favorite class on KelbyOne is “Just One Flash” by Scott Kelby. I often shoot on location and have to travel light. However, I love using OCF flash. This is a great class with lots of usable information. I even had the same softbox before I watched the class. : )
