Last month COD Photo Program Graduate Uwe Gsedl hosted a fashion shoot and lighting demonstration for Terry Vitacco’s Photo 1101 classes. He gave the students a tour of his West Chicago studio, showed his portfolio and described his many lighting variations.

He explained how he shoots tethered so he can immediately evaluate his shots. “I like to make dramatic photographs,” he told the students. “The photographer must always remember that they are in charge of the shoot,” said Gsedl.

He shared many of his experiences from working with a diverse group of clients and gave valuable advice to the students in preparation for their  annual “Paint it Black” class photo shoot.

When asked  how to get  models to relax he suggested, “Tell them a story.”
