This is the last part of the 2012 North American tour recap.
I ended the tour by treating myself to one of the most creative photo events I’ve ever been to: After Dark.
The sessions with creative photographers include pretty much all topics, from studio photography to seeing light to post production to how creativity works. Together with a bunch of vendors who provide equipment to play with. It’s the perfect organised chaos with tens of sessions and activity and the sessions can last far into the small hours of the day. Night location shot anyone? It’s called After Dark for a reason…
Chris has spent the last three days at a photography event like no other. After Dark is a very relaxed and highly creative meet-up of several hundred participating photographers and several tens of professional photographers who act as mentors and work with the participants on all kinds of projects, from small flash on-location lighting, working with models, fashion photography, post production, big studio setups, marketing, business, photoshop, … you name it. The event takes place at different locations throughout the year, this time it was in Kansas City.
Chris catches some of the atmosphere of After Dark and talks with the founder of After Dark, David Junion, and with Brian DeMint, photographer and one of the mentors at the event.
