Capturing people’s personality in portrait photography settings can be challenging, learning the subject that is in front of the camera in very little turn around. First you must engage with your subject, make them feel comfortable, remain aware of light, and consider your surroundings at the same time!
If you’re looking to learn some new portrait photography tips, as well as how to create lighting techniques for a variety of looks. My approach for everything from portraits to dance photography.
The workshops are an assortment of different settings, mainly this will be in a studio setting learning different setups but we will be on location as well. We will be creating classic foundation of both formal and candid portraiture on which we continue to build. You will learn portrait photography techniques with strobe lights (at times content lighting as well) in a controlled studio setup, as well as how to modify natural light outdoors on location.
Studio portfolio building will be created typically against a simple, minimal background. The on-location portraits will utilize more complex environments that help to tell a story, whether you’re shooting indoors or outdoors, with natural or artificial light. Emphasis will be placed on learning photo lighting techniques and ways to make your subjects relax in front of the camera, so you can focus on taking beautiful portraits.
These typical workshop are for beginners or has an equivalent level of experience. In these workshops we’ll dig deeper into the equipment and get further into the creative choices and challenges of consistently taking good photos, even in challenging lighting conditions.
This is a small group, hands-on workshop (8-12). In the late afternoon or evening classes we’ll shoot models under a variety of lighting conditions, some of them challenging, so you can test out your new skills and control.
There will be workshops on the road as well, would love to see you there. Would love to do some out west in Utah, or the Northwest like Portland, OR or the Northeast to get some fall colors. How would you feel about going somewhere tropical like Miami or the Florida Keys. I'm working on finding great locations and putting it all together so stay tuned for that.
