Portrait photography: I considered myself primarily a landscape photographer until I was introduced to studio lighting and portraiture at Photoshop World 2010. Westcott had a ‘Shoot Out’ booth on the Expo floor with professional lighting, sets and models. I was instantly hooked and spent hours at the booth taking hundreds of photographs. Upon returning home, I entered Westcott Flickr Photoshop World ‘Shoot Out’ contest and amazingly, won first place. Shortly after, a truck pulled up to my front door and delivered a bunch of lighting equipment. Luckily my husband and I had the space and I set up a small 400 sq ft studio. I can’t imagine ever going back to landscapes! Know more about Regina Pagles
