Could this be one of the longest threads on Wedding Shows?
One thing for sure, is it’s packed with some very good insights and
detailed analysis marketing reviews from Marian who attended several
shows this year and gave us a detailed synopsis of booth layout, design and
wedding trade show secrets. This is good stuff, and more keeps adding to it.

Neil says….”Great find on the Hurrell pullback shots!” in this thread on Marian’s post
on lighting….Marian’s post….”Westcott calls them the Spiderlite kits and they sell
different variations (along with other vendors). I couldn’t believe the size of this 500
watt bulb when I took it out of the box and it got me thinking. I like to DIY things and I
could rig up something permanently in my studio, with a few of these. (Heck, 3 of these
will give me 1500 watts.)
More wattage than the Spiderlite kits!…” Click here or above to read more.

Fairy models needed
Sean’s looking for fairy models, “I’m currently having a problem getting more samples
of fairy portrait photos(always has been my problem really). I was suppose to have
a couple of girl models to shoot but it looks like they fell through for now. I’m under
the gun to get a couple more sets of samples. I currently have only one set of samples
from one model. Anyone have any ideas for quickly locating little models?”

Stepping outside my comfort zone
Thomas said, “I rarely ever photograph at night. This was a group of Models,
Make up artists and photographers that had a get together last night to
just go out and play in Old Sacramento. I almost bailed at first as it didn’t
seem too organized but I stayed and glad I did. ”
