This workshop is going to be a partial classroom setup and partial model shoot.
Classroom: We will begin with the class and will be going through how to create better portraits and better pose your model(s). The first part of the night will be in a classroom setup and we will go over creative posing for portraits. We will cover the do's and don'ts, how to move beyond the basic shoot, and how to get the model to pose like what you are seeing in your head. We will cover everything from shooting senior portraits, business headshots, full body modeling and more. We will also go over what to look for prior to taking the photo, so that you will have what you need in post processing in Lightroom, Photoshop, or other software program. Post processing is where you do most of your work to get the final product to shine.
We practice with different models here at the workshop for a reason. Each one has different attributes, different ways of moving, and different outfits. Each portrait can be different. It's seeing what's different and making it great that will separate you from the next person.
I've been asked many times what makes the best photo/portrait...and each one is different. The hard part can be figuring that out, but with practice you will find the look you like best.
Model Shoot: After that, we will move over to the studio and practice these ideas. We should have about two hours to discuss and practice what we did in the classroom.
Our Model for the night is: Jen
