This is something that I have been wanting to do for so long, but finally have put everything together for other people – and I could not be more excited.
If you want to learn how to enhance your lifestyle photography skills – here it is. I want you to be able to look at an entire room differently. I want you to walk into anyone’s home and think “I can capture these moments” no matter the light, the decor, the styling, the mess…. I want you to be able to embrace it all. I want people to remember that bedhead on early mornings, first steps over toys, and mundane daily events, for a lifetime.
This 2 week online workshop (we’ll make a facebook group for easy access and posting!) will focus on: setting the scene, composition and angles, finding the light where it seems impossible, and engaging without altering the action. I will have photo prompts for you to choose from, so that you can shoot, post, and get CC. While we will focus primarily on indoors, I will absolutely talk about transferring these concepts to outdoor sessions, as well.
The format will be come and go. I will post the prompt/photo for the next day, every night. During that time (and throughout the day), I will answer your questions and help with seeing what makes a photo a “snapshot” v. an impactful lifestyle image.
The only requirement of the class is that you know how to shoot manual with your DSLR. If you do not, I have online manual classes that run all year long – so please ask me about those, if needed. Also, this is not an editing course. I will for sure help you see color and exposure problems, but I am not going to be going over editing steps in PS or LR.
Come with an open heart and a creative mind. Be prepared to lay on the floor, move to windows, stand on tables, and see things differently than you have before! This is your opportunity to give your clients AND yourself photos filled with natural laughter, details that you do not want to forget, and capture emotions on camera that you can feel when you look at them.
2 week course: $250
