Ballarinas - Creative Portrait Shoot

Come capture beautiful images of Ballerinas.

We have a couple models lined up for this fun evening session.

We will work both in the studio a bit and on-location in this historical mall. The mall has some gorgeous marble structures, walls, and lighting that will all make perfect backdrops.

If you have any ideas that you have wanted to try with a dancer - now is your chance.

We will be working with studio strobes and video lights, but please be ready to use your flash some too as the building will not be well lit at this hour. My goal is to show you how to capture stunning images in this different kind of lighting scenario. Please know how to put your camera into manual mode and how to control your F-stop, ISO, and shutter speed. I will help give you direction and teach you how to expose in this condition but will not have time to help each person with finding camera settings.

This is a class that's good for beginners through advanced, just bring your camera manual along if you are not completely comfortable with your camera functions and how to change settings. Every make and body of camera is different and I simply do not know them all.

This session will be limited to only 12 photographers, plus the event hosts, to keep the photographer to model ratio low.

Change to the following (below): I will be posting the post processing class for next week or on-line through a Webinar.

Saturday morning we will have the second part of this event, where you will learn how to post process these images into portrait art using software like Photoshop, or Corel Painter.

You can RSVP and attend this one event or both - if you wish to learn how to take your images to the next level of creativity.

You may also just attend the morning post processing class, but we will be working with the images we captured at this ballerina session.

Both of these events are separate and need to be RSVP'd to separately please.

I can't wait, this will be a really fun collaboration of creativity!

Hope to see you there!

    I had a great time. I really appreciate the fact that the more experienced photographers are so willing to help and give information to us. I used my 28mm prime lens the whole time and was really pleased with the results!

    Also, my apologies for not getting the post processing event on the books officially for Saturday morning. And now with the weather that has hit my area in Fort Mill my schedule of studio sessions may be all moved around and therefore I either need to do this next weekend. Or virtually on-line, through a webinar. Which would you all prefer?

    It's going to be cold tonight. Be sure that you dress warm. The studio will be warm and the mall, although covered and heated a bit will not be completely warm since it is SO cold outside.
