Detroit Michigan Commercial Photographers Mary DuPrie So I had another Meetup on Saturday night, Photographing Models with Mary DuPrie Studios.  A smaller group of photographers and we did just this one setup.  I normally have a concept in mind as far as lighting.  I wanted to overexpose the background and use neutral density gels on […]
