Posing Portraits on Location with Bobbi Lane & Lee Varis

October 5, 2019, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


Join photographers Bobbi Lane and Lee Varis (“The Mistress of Light” and “The Sultan of Skin”) for a workshop that will emphasize how to appropriately pose any subject, from individuals to couples and families.

Everyone wants to make wonderful photos of their family, friends and associates and learn how to pose them in a natural and relaxed way. People need a good portrait for social media, both fun and business! This class covers how to pose individuals and couples and also demonstrates effective communication methods to help your subjects feel at ease. The posing techniques will be for both male and female individuals for headshots, senior portraits, how to pose for ¾ and full length, couples – including engagement photos, and families. Learn how to make locations work for you and find the scene to make a great composition and set up creative situations. This class will elevate your confidence for shooting on location with creative ideas.

For this workshop, we will begin with a class in our Hunt’s Photo, Melrose location and continue in the afternoon at the Saugus Iron Works with models. Lunch will be included.
