Amazing couple of days & nights in Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley. Recent rains produced vivid color and plant life on the desert floor. Can't wait to go back.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with photographer Scott Robert Lim as he shared his story of starting out as a natural light wedding photographer to adopting strobes for killer wedding and portrait shots. I discovered Scott after seeing him on Creative Live demonstrating his technique. I watched it and started practicing his technique, right away creating exciting images. I knew I had to get Scott over for interview and let him tell his own story.
Click HERE to see my post and Part 1 of the video interview on the Pro Photo Coalition site
My take on Scott's technique using only two strobes and a shoot through umbrella
