Here is an event that is more in line of the fashion and glamour industry. As I'm sure you're aware, 99% of all commercial photos (magazines, advertising) is retouched in photoshop or some other post processing software.
I would like to host a "Glamour Model Portrait Shoot and Retouching!" event where we'll have three models get made up in makeup and head wear in studio and then have us photographers come to:
- Part 1 - take portrait photos
- Part 2 - that you are asked to retouch before posting.
What will happen is you will show up with your gear and pose the models however you like (will likely have a solid color -white or black- background behind them) and take portraits of them. Then you will work on the images at home and post both the before and after images on the Meetup event page album/gallery, either both on the same image or as two images (and as many sets of photos as you like).
This is a different type of event where the post production process (Photoshop) will be emphasized and some people may do a little, some might do a lot (if you only want to do the photoshoot and post untouched images, that is ok too).
Because of the size of the venue and number of photographers, we are doing this in two groups, one after another. The models will come and get made up a few hours prior and then the photographers will get into groups of four and photograph the models portrait shots at three stations. You'll get a chance to photograph every model by the end.
You must bring your own lights. I will have some continuous lights there and if we are lucky, there will be ample window light. If you have small strobes/speed lights, this is a good event to bring them.
Please upload your favorite photos to the Meetup group after the event.
PS: there is ample street parking and the studio is accessible by transit.
