Picture Perfect People Photography

  • October 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Aperture Gallery

In this Meet Up award-winning photographer Mikkel Aaland will share his insights into the art of shooting candids and formal portraits. Both approaches are challenging and Aaland will discuss subjects ranging from proper photographic technique, choosing equipment, lighting, model releases as well as questions of privacy.  

If you ever wanted to hear from a professional on the topic of effectively photographing people, you won't want to miss this meeting.

And once again we will be meeting in the beautiful Aperture Gallery in Campbell, CA and seating will be slightly limited... so RSVP early!

Mikkel Aaland is best selling author, photographer and popular workshop leader.  He has been taking pictures of people professionally since 1974.

    Great presentation. Has a great style of interfacing with his subjects. I got a copy of his LR5 DVD and was surprised to find that it does not run on CHROME, needs IE or FIREFOX and does not seem able to run in full screen. Browser and Peach Pit page logo still shows. Is this a new format for the Video to Brain series?

    Very good examples of candid phtography taken at interesting locations. I particularly enjoyed the video portion where we got to see Mikkel interacting with a man and his son while photographing them.

    Great presentation Mikkel! Enjoyed your images from Tibet and your experiences with street photography. Enjoyed your coverage of portraiture using light painting as well. Looking at your Travel Photography: Seaside Road Trip video on Lynda.com. Thanks for setting this up Frederick! Hope to see you all again in another meet up!

      It definitely looks that way Michelle. I'll ask Mikkel if he'd be up for doing an encore presentation next month.

    Is seating really limited ? 90 attendees seems like alot.

    October 13, 2013

    • Frederick Van J.

      Yes. There are 80 seats. But I try and allow for a few no-shows - hence the 90 limit. 90 have RSVP'd and 25 are on the waiting list.
