'Bare Studio Workshop' - Photographer Training in Ashburn

Really enjoyed teaching our latest class, 'The Bare Studio: Improvising Inside the Box', with my friend Roger Hammons at his studio in Ashburn, Virginia last Wednesday.

For this workshop we choose to work with an empty studio (no lights, posing aids or backgrounds ) and see how creative we could be finding light and creating great poses with that light. Our models did an excellent job and made our job so easy:-) - thank you Autumn and Katie!

We will continue offering classes over the coming months and look forward to you joining us on our photographic adventures. Please call the studio at 301-946-4656 for upcoming class details.

Here are some of the images we created:








Michael Dunphy's studio, Avonlee Photography, is located in Silver Spring just north of downtown Kensington in Montgomery County, Maryland. The studio caters to Portrait, Commercial and wedding clients in the DC metro area. Please visit our website for more information or call us at 301-946-4656

12 month Baby Plan portrait session by Silver Spring MD newborn baby photographer

On January 20th we photographed the one year portrait session for baby Nora as part of our year long Baby Plan. This session is the 4th and final one of Nora's first year of life.

She is now walking around like crazy all by herself.  During each of our 4 portrait sessions we have captured an image that will be included in a special photographic Art Piece (called the Baby Panel) that is included in our Baby Plan. We have chosen the image below for the final spot on our Baby Panel:

Before and After - The Power of Photoshop

Recently, there has been a number of un-retouched photographs of celebrities released on the web which clearly show how the fashion industry has attempted to 'fool' the average consumer. Where would the industry be without skilled Photoshop artists that can take an average looking celebrity and turn them into something spectacular. The short film below made by Dove, shows just what is possible with a little makeup and some computer time.
