Bryan Decker



My name is Bryan Decker. I live in Salem, Oregon, am very happily married and have 1 handsome boy and 4 beautiful girls. I started photography as a hobby in 2006 when we bought our first DSLR, a Canon 350D Rebel. I dove head first into SLR photography, determined to finally learn how to take good pictures. Since that time my wallet has become thinner and my camera bag thicker, but more importantly I am loving the things I am learning and very happy with the results I am getting. I love to learn new things (although sometimes it takes me longer than it should) and I like to pass that learning on to others so they don't have to face the same frustrations. I hope you enjoy my collections!

The Show Must Go On

It is the peak of the dance season as our local dance school prepares for the recital. Over the past two years I have been fortunate enough to be invited by the owner to take the official photos of the performance which is a great opportunity to test equipment, styles and methods while working with models who are made-up and in costume.

For this years performance I upgraded my flash equipment by purchasing a 7' parabolic umbrella and putting three strobes in it (One Canon and two new Yunguo's) for my key light using Yonguo triggers. It worked great and I love the soft light it produces. Here are some shots of my daughters with that setup.
