Workshop Description
Join Hunt’s Photo Education for another entry in our series of portrait workshops. On this unique entry, we will be emphasizing photographing portraits in natural light with alternative lens techniques! We will give tips and tricks on using Lensbaby and Laowa lenses, as well as photographing using standard portrait lenses and using additional techniques for added effect! This will be such a unique portrait workshop because it can give your portraits a very one-of-a-kind look! Lensbaby users are encouraged to attend, but photographers of ANY skill level are encouraged to attend. Get excited!
We will then follow it up the following week to review your portraits in an online image review. This will be an excellent opportunity to review where you succeeded and what others did that worked, too!
