When: Sunday October 30, 2016, 12:00-3:00pm
You don’t need a lot of money or equipment for good portraits! Join us for an inspiring afternoon where you’ll learn all aspects of portraiture when photographing people or pets including: posing, directing, dealing with different ages, the home studio, working on location, editing, and common business practices. We will explore different ways to light a subject. We will cover natural light, using one on-camera speedlight, strobes and more.
We will show how to do the number one thing to obtain the best possible portrait of your subject-how to make them comfortable in front of the camera. These simple techniques will work on babies and animals as well as adults. We will help you become aware of your background so you don’t have poles or objects that appear to be coming out of the subjects head.
Requirements and Equipment Needs: You must sign up in advance. Prior knowledge of photography is recommended but not necessary. You will need a digital camera (point and shoot or DSLR) preferably with manual controls. Optional equipment: an external flash.
