Every year we team up with BYU’s Theatre Ballet team to create some fun photos that they use to promote their annual “Ballet in Concert“. This year the girls wanted a modern take on the normal ballet poster, so we decided to go to BYU’s power plant and shoot in front of some fun industrial backgrounds. Check out this behind the scenes video to see how we created these pictures. The concert is coming up on January 29th through the 31st, so hurry and get your tickets now at arts.byu.edu.
A few months ago Jaren Wilkey was asked to write an article on the BYU Wireless Workflow for Professional Photographer Magazine, which is the official magazine of the Professional Photographers of America. Jaren explain how BYU Photo uses wireless transmitters to post sports photos to social media in real time, which is a system that many photographers are interested in duplicating. The worst part about having your photos or stories appear in a magazine is the wait for it to come out, but the wait is finally over and the article is now live. Check it out on their website at ppmag.com let us know what you think!
