-Natural Light - everything from window light to direct light.
-Location, props and posing - connecting with your subject.
-Group portraits - reducing awkward posing.

Portraiture is by far my favorite subject of photography. Whether it's a person or an animal - a good portrait creates a tangible connection between the viewer and the subject. In this workshop you will learn how to choose your locations and lighting with confidence and ease. Most importantly though, I will be teaching tips and tricks that I use on almost all of my shoots to help you engage with your subject and take breathtaking images every time.
There will be a 45 minute meal break, provided by K8 Photo (meal TBA). Please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions when you book your space.
Plan to bring your camera, memory card and any lenses or gear you may have.
*You will need a basic understanding of exposure and camera controls to attend this workshop.
