Photo Lesson with Stephen

Oliver Endahl

Hey everyone, 

Being a photographer, sometimes I give lessons to my friends & teach them how to shoot using a DSLR camera. Recently I've been teaching my friend Stephen Jacobsen.

It's fun to teach someone photo techniques about how to manually control the light, & it's also good because during the lesson I'm the model. I think it's healthy to be on the other side of the camera once in a while to remind yourself what it's like. 

Here's a few of my favorite photos we captured around Hollywood the other day. (These shots were taken by Stephen & edited by myself)

That last one of my bag I requested Stephen get a shot of. I recently designed my new camera bag from the Timbuk2 website & am stoked with the results. (& I can fit both my camera's, 3 lenses & a bounce flash in there)  

Stephen has a great eye for photos & improves every time we shoot.

Stay tuned for more,

Falling Instagram Pose

Oliver Endahl

Last week I discussed the "falling pose" & how I wanted to see your versions of it, & you guys delivered! 

Here are 4 of my favorite "falling" shots from this past week.

Dancer - @Ev_Vaah

Dancer - @J_Carara Photographer - @Nicole_Marcelli

Dancer - @2Pointe0 Photographer - CMYK Photography 

I always enjoy going through the #BalletZaidaigers hashtag on Instagram & seeing dancers from all over the world. Dance really is a universal language that we all speak.
