Portrait photography is a valuable skill for every photographer to master and in this TWO HOUR presentation, Joe will take you through the entire process.
This presentation will begin with a discussion about what makes a great portrait and the prep that you should be doing before you even pick up the camera. Joe will do a virtual studio demo to show you how to create great lighting for your portraits with a minimal amount of equipment.
This is not your parent’s portrait class! Using his KISS IT (Keep It Super Simple) techniques, Joe will show how to create flattering portraits with simple lighting and posing techniques. He will cover everything from camera and lens selection, depth of field, camera angles, composition, posing, lighting, backgrounds, and more!
What you will learn:
- How to prep and communicate with your subjects.
- Lens selection.
- Lighting selection and set-ups — both the WHYS and HOWS.
- Background selection.
- Posing and directing for relaxed natural looks.
- Cropping and Composition.
- … and much more!

FREE presentations are recorded and can be viewed for 72 hours for a one-time fee of $5.00 per presentation. See the link above to reserve your opportunity to view the replay.
Why does it cost $5.00 to view a replay of a FREE class? These are live, interactive presentations that I make available at no cost. In addition to the time involved in creating the presentation and delivering it, it takes additional time to upload and make the recordings available for you to watch, and I pay a fee to host the video while it is online.
