In this two hour, one-on-one course, you will learn the fundamentals of taking beautiful, naturally lit portraits. You will learn how to pose and light your subject to perfection. In this is a hands-on course, a model will be provided and you will learn how to take amazing portraits, every time! The session includes location selection, how to time your photo session, and most importantly, how to light and pose your subject(s). If you are interested in learning to shoot couples, I will provide a 2nd model for an additional fee of $150. This is recommended if you are pursuing a career in wedding and engagement photography.
Often, there is something missing in portraits. Sometimes the light isn’t right, or the image does not come out as sharp as you want. In this course, I will teach you bulletproof techniques that will guide you into the next level of photography. This session is a must-have for the aspiring photographer who wants to take their hobby to the upper echelon. Photography careers are not made by taking mediocre images, rather they are solidified by creating photos that stand out and make your clients say WOW! All that is required is a digital SLR or mirrorless camera.
After the photo session is concluded, I will show you some awesome editing techniques that will enhance your images, while maintaining their integrity. Overediting is a common mistake that many new photographers make. I will explain how I achieve the look in all of my photos and will give you step by step instructions on how to achieve a classic, yet dramatic look in your post-production.
This course is designed for a medium to advanced skill level. A solid understanding of aperture, ISO and shutter is recommended but is not required.
