THE ART SERIES - FINE ART.jpg

Fine Art Portraits

DATES:  TBC

VENUE: TBC

I´m super excited to announce my brand new portrait workshop!

This is your time to be creative, playful, nurture your imagination and encourage creative growth.

The workshop will enable you to take beautiful portraits of women and children  with a limited amount of area, using only available light and studio light. These are portraits you can set up anywhere - without needing a professional studio. You will also get a good understanding of light conditions and their effect on your portraits as well as the kind of moods different light conditions can create. 

Over the two days, we will work with models and professional stylists to explore and capture timeless + creative fine art portraits of women and children. You will learn how to create, shoot and edit beautiful photos and we will discuss the use of natural light and studio light, camera settings, scene/backdrop selection, styled storytelling creation and finding your personal style.

I will walk you through my entire process from planning to executing ideas. I´ll show you how I select clothes, hair and make-up. How to set up the scene, how to mindfully communicate and make your subject feel comfortable during the shoot.

THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHING MANUALLY

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life through a lens, is a 4-5 hour class (with lunch break and practical). We will cover how to achieve proper exposure in different settings, composition, lighting and just a little bit of light editing. It sounds like A LOT. You are probably wondering how are you going to be able to keep up, and better yet, retain all of this information. Well there are a few ways. One, my easy-going approach to teaching has helped people relax in my classes, it is a safe comfortable environment where you can ask questions without judgement. Two, I will be opening a secret Facebook group where only attendees can join, share images, ask questions and get all around great support! :) And thirdly is- I have designed a beautiful workbook that gives you ideas and examples of settings, lighting and composition and much more!!  This workbook is only available to those who attend the workshop!!  I will always be in the group answering questions, so you will have on-going support in learning how to capture your little how you have always wanted to!
