Saturday February 5th, 9am-4pm • Hunt’s Photo, Manchester
Featuring a description of basic posing techniques in portraits
Recommended Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of your camera, interest in portraits
Instructor: Paul Nelson & Don Toothaker
Class Size: Maximum 12 attendees
Join Hunt’s Photo Education for another entry in our series of portrait workshops where we will be emphasizing subject posing in portraits! We will discuss basic posing techniques and how to position your subject’s hands and body, and how to use angles, perspective, and depth of field to create a successful portrait. We will also discuss subject expression and how it relates to lighting!
We will begin with an introductory presentation that discusses posing and directing. We will then begin photographing each other. (One of the keys to understanding how to interact behind the camera is to get in front of it!) After a short break, we will photograph models for the afternoon. This will be a very fun and informative class! Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend.
This workshop will emphasize creating portraits using studio light and/or strobes. Please note that we will be holding our Portrait Lighting Bootcamp the day prior on Saturday, January 15th. If you sign up for both workshops, you will receive an additional $50 off of the total! Use promo code “Bootcamp” prior to signing up for this ticket!
