A look at the iconic work of Forrest Mankins and how he does it
Like Alex Strohl, Forrest Mankins is one of my favourite photographers out there. When I learned about a workshop together, I'd instantly jumped on it. The workshop covers photoshoots and shooting with a team (models, videographers etc..) Film and Digitial photography
Editing and using film photographer as reference. It is more for a niche of photographers and less broad than the other Strohl Works workshop but it is great if you are a photographer that includes analog and digital photography your workflow. However, something was missing (hence the 4 stars). It was quite short and some of the videos felt more as an introduction to the subject. The episodes in the fields were good but it sometimes looked more as a portrait video than a workshop. The editing episodes were also good but felt a bit incomplete. I wished I'd see more in-depth about using film photography aspects in the editing of digital images. It would have been nice to see Forrest edits more photos from the photoshoot. Forrest Mankins editing style is so unique, I would have liked to see more of it. The 500$ challenge by Forrest was amazing. It actually shows that gear should NOT block you to work. During this episode, Forrest takes you on a photoshoot where he uses an old camera body and a cheap prime lens while still producing editorial work. That was insane, honestly. Highlight of the workshop.
