Come Behind The Scenes On Real Weddings & Engagement Sessions

Unscripted gives you a front-row seat to real weddings and engagement shoots shot by Lin and Jirsa Photography.

Real-Life Problem Solving On Client Shoots

Get a first hand look into our actual client shoots. See how we make the best of our situation  when faced with challenging wedding timelines and limited photo backgrounds. From the posing and communication over to lighting and how we compose and take the final shot – you get to follow us through how we problem solve on location.

Client Direction & Posing

Communication is the foundation to every great photo shoot. Clients look to the photographer to direct and show them how to best pose for each scene. What you’ll see in this workshop is a raw-unedited version of how we interact with clients and direct them into the perfect pose and expression for each scene.

On The Spot Problem Solving

It’s not often that you get to see why a photographer chooses their lighting and settings based on the time constraints and venue limitations they are faced with. You’ll get a inside look at how stressful it can be to come up with creative ideas on the spot.

Lighting & Settings

We frequently get asked why we chose a specific lens or a certain flash modifier for the scene we are shooting in. This is your chance to see exactly why we choose specific lighting tools & gear to make an image exceptional.

Off-Camera Flash Lighting Techniques Made Easy

We’ve given you a great foundation and understanding of lighting in courses like Lighting 101 & 201 – now see them applied in real client shoots using various modifiers, techniques, and tools.

Simple Use Of Reflectors

Reflectors are the most useful lighting tool you can have on your person at any shoot and they just so happen to be the least expensive. We use reflectors in this series during engagements and weddings to fill light, scrim, or block light.

Powerful Pocket Flashes

Lighting 101 & 201 was all about using pocket flashes to balance ambient light with external light sources. We take it up a notch and double and triple our power to show you just how capable your pocket flashes are and how convenient they are for on-the-go shots.

Simulate Sunlight With Strobes

With larger strobes like the Profoto B2 we show you just how useful all that power is for moments when you need to recreate golden hour or simulate sunlight. We also cover how we take composite shots to make sure we have plenty of room in post to work around.

Nighttime Couples Portraiture Made Easy

Don’t be afraid of the dark – we give you easy lighting techniques and set you up with ideal settings to make it simple to set up beautiful night shots for yourself. From Whip Pans to backflash, we’ve got it all in Season 1 of Unscripted.

Hear What Premium Members Have To Say About This Workshop

Listen to what our Premium members had to say about what has easily become one of their favorite workshops in our Premium catalog!

Carol Cruz

All of the content on the site has been great so far (tutorials, etc.). The Unscripted and the critique sessions are particularly useful in that it is almost like interning. For people who don’t always have the BTS look, this is great.

Taiyyib Choudhry

You get to see Pye in his natural habitat, get to see the BTS and also take a glimpse into Pye’s constructive thought process about approaching each scene and surroundings, analyzing it and then choosing the right piece of gear for flawless execution.

Joshua Atticks 

It’s one of my favorites. It gets down to business quickly and shows the creative process. I usually have just 15-30 minutes of free time to watch and they are perfect and inspiring.
