The new way to overcome limitations we noticed when we did the last portrait session. One 'model' and more than 10 photographers at the same time will not work well. Speed-Shooting® is the answer. With Speed-Shooting® we can have up to 20 individuals improving their portrait taking skills.
Simple, effective and a lot of fun: outdoor speed-shooting
We will do an intensive portrait shooting. After this Meetup you will be the portrait specialist at friends- and family-events ;) and you also will know how to direct light-assistants and 'models' ;)
After some general basics and discussions about portrait styles we will form groups of three. The photographer, the portrait-model and the light-assistant. Each group will have some basic light forming equipment available.
Each photographer has 15 minutes time to work with the model, shooting portraits but also instructing model and light-assistant.
After the 15 minutes and a five minutes break the roles will change. Photographer will become model, the model light-assistant.
After three rounds each of us Happy Shuttercounts will have been photographer, model and light-assistant.
Brussels / outdoor - but we may adopt the location depending on the freshness of the summer ;)
