Interactive Online Photography Presentation
If you are good with a camera, you have probably been asked to shoot a portrait for a friend, relative or colleague. That also means that you have probably realized that shooting portraits is not just a matter of aiming your camera at someone and saying cheese!
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!
Who should attend this LIVE presentation?
