The name of the photography workshop I attended earlier this Spring hosted by the fabulous Amanda Eaton with Amanda Eaton Photography. The name served very well for what we would be learning that day… how to illuminate our subjects. Amanda Eaton is a natural light photographer in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, who I was so glad […]
