This is an older post from a year that we spent back in Alabama. I had the opportunity to spend an awesome three days attending the “Shoot With Beckstead” workshop in Birmingham, Alabama. It was one of my favorite workshops that I’ve had the opportunity to attend in over 15 years of doing this professionally. It added a whole new realm of thinking to my composition. Our host for the event was kind enough to hook us up with two incredibly vivid locations to shoot – The Lyric Theater (before restoration) and Sloss Furnace – a favorite from my high school days. I’m so glad to hear that The Lyric has been renovated and will be reopening in 2016! Can’t wait to see the changes.
