• Halsman Inspired Projection Model Shoot
    Phillipe Halsman was a surrealist photographer in the mid 20th century, he worked a lot with Dali, and one of the things he did then was projection photography - and after seeing some of his projection photography, I was once again inspired to set this up for some photography fun. This particular projection shoot is inspired by Halsman's photography, and the Impressionist painters - Renoir, Van Gogh, Monet.. Bright colors, texture and beauty. How can we go wrong? This shoot will be set up in such a way that the only projected image will be on the model - you won't lose the model in the photo. I will be adding some different images to this shoot as well from time I did this photo shoot. What: Model Photo Shoot Where: Picture This Studio When: Feb 9th, 7pm Why: Because Art and Models and Photography makes for a happy day How Much: $35 Minimum - 6 attendees What do you need to bring: You and your camera. A longer lens is better than a super wide one for this event. Everything else will be provided to you.

Here's where it get's fun: 4-5 PM - We will get our laptops out, this time we'll go through our photos - and pull out our best Nice and best Naughty photo. My PLAN here is to take your BEST Nice and your BEST Naughty, and help you each put them into one picture using Photoshop layers. This is going to be tricky, but it can be done.

If you'd like to bring props, as always you are welcome to do so. I Will Provide • One-on-One instruction as needed • Model - including all costs - and of course Hair, Makeup and Style (by Stacey Manuel) (You may want to bring a little extra for this model - she always goes above and beyond - you don't have to tip - but if she brings 200%.. just sayin') • Studio setup • Studio space and time • Editing instruction • Model Releases • Water The Fine Print • When - Saturday January 9th, 1:30 pm to 8 pm • How Much - $100 This payment is required to RSVP.

  • Belle Isle Bridal Shoot and Trash the Dress
    In Case of Rain - this will be rescheduled for August 10th. - if this reschedule date doesn't work for you, I will gladly refund your money. :) We will meet at The Belle Isle Casino (on Belle Isle - not one of the real casino's in Detroit) at 6:30 PM. There is easy parking and an easy way to the fountain from here. This is an "on site" bridal shoot. We will meet on Belle Isle and tour some of the more awesome sites (fountain, Casino, Anna Scripps, the docks, the fields to name some) and photograph at least one real bride, and one real model in real "portrait" situations that you will be able to use for your bridal portfolio. At the end of the shoot (for the last hour or so) we will head over to the small beach behind the lighthouse, and we'll shoot some Trash the Dress - eventually getting IN the water. (if we need to change the water location, we will.. it is an island after all ;) ) NOTE: Only the MODEL(S) will be doing this, our REAL BRIDE models in their actual wedding dresses will NOT be getting into the water. This shoot will be from full daylight to just past sunset. It will be GORGEOUS. Model(s) to be announced What to bring Your camera Your favorite lens- I say Favorite because I tend to shoot wide angle for these shoots, but I know plenty of people that LOVE their long lens for this type of shoot. Your speedlight (if you have one, it is not required as we will be outside) Any props you'd like to bring As always, I take care of all the models payments, you do not need to tip them, and you do not owe them pictures. If you would like to share pictures with our "real brides" it is appreciated, but not required.

    It is with a great deal of delight that I announce that Royal Oak Photography (and as such, Portfolio Builders) has partnered with Zenfolio. What does that mean for you? Well it means that once a month, we'll have a meetup based on the Zenfolio curriculum and/or a Zenfolio sponsored photo walk. And because we are pretty lucky, Justin Miller, technical evangelist and creator of the Zenfolio tutorial vidoes, will be joining us at some of these events as well. Our first event is called Creating a Plan for your Business. At this event, we'll talk about, well, making a plan to help you stand out, and to help you be successful as a photographer in today's market. Justin Miller will be presenting on this topic. I hope that you can attend, this will be a great topic, with a LOT of great information for you.
