Focus on the Basics - Communication - A model shoot/workshop

The Focus on the Basics workshops are designed to help you learn the basics of taking a good photo. Over the course of the series we'll learn about Basic Lighting (high key and low key), Exposure (how to take a good exposure), Composition and Communication. These are all KEY factors in taking a good photograph, and many people struggle to learn them on their own.

These workshops will all be small, and will each feature one-on-one training with a model to learn each . And of course, hair and makeup so your photos have to potential to be portfolio worthy. All models will sign releases that you will be provided with at the end of the workshop.


This workshop is all about communication with your subject whether it be a model or a client.

This workshop combines a classroom/lecture setting along with one-on-one skill building lessons - all with a professional model (of course with hair and makeup).

My goal, is that you will leave this workshop feeling more confident about how you communicate with whomever you are pointing a camera at, making you less nervous, and as a result making your subject less nervous, with an overall result of you will take better photos.

This is an INTERMEDIATE level class. You are expected to know how to shoot in Manual settings on your camera for this, as all shooting will be done in Manual Settings.
