How does my
You will be given
assignments based on the equipment you now own. If you don't
have a full studio light setup, don't panic. If you are an on
location photographer and use only existing light, you will only
need a "Main Light" to learn how to light your subjects.
If you don't have
one studio type strobe, you can go to your local Home Depot and
get an inexpensive shop light with a clamp, and attach it to any
light stand. You can set your camera to tungsten and take your
assignment images. DO NOT go out and purchase any equipment
without first speaking with me about it. most stores will try
and sell you their biggest, most expensive products.
Most of what you
will be learning will be posing. You will be able to use any
lighting equipment you have to learn the techniques.
You will be given
assignments to complete. You do the assignment, send me the
images by email, I will send back either a written critique, or
an video analysis of your work. I will call on the phone if I
can't explain what you need to adjust in an email or on a video
is a very personalized learning process. You can learn quickly, or take weeks to
complete each assignment. Your results will depend on how fast
assignment/critique process is the only real way you will truly
learn the techniques required to create flattering portraits for
your clients. I have made it a point to keep the prices of the
class within everyone's budget.
You may like
attending evening, or weekly workshops presented by our national
and state associations, but you can't learn what to fix unless
you have someone to help you "get it right".
videos can teach you a lot, but in order to really master the
craft, you need someone to review and correct your results.
