Upcoming masterclasses: Romania, United Kingdom, Norway and Italy. More details soon!
My masterclass is prepared for everybody who wants to create better portraits. This very intensive day will be full of passion, knowledge and lights.
You will understand how to efficiently use the parameters of the camera to avoid mistakes and create memorable shots of babies, children and parents.
I will go through the one of the most important topics which is… selecting correct source of light for the session. This will allow you to avoid mistakes and you will learn how to choose and mix different source of light when taking unique pictures.
During our practical part of the workshop we will implement the knowledge into practice and we will together create unforgettable portraits.
Photos taken during the session will be later edited in Photoshop therefore it is extremely important to maximally focus during the photo shoot.
You will learn about the lighting schemes. The light is one of the key issues and its correct scheme impacts the style of the photographs.
You will understand which light modifiers you should use during the photo session. This issue is a bit technical but important as it is affecting the raw files and thus the final result. The level of light softening and the direction of the light flow is a difficult matter and understanding the main light modifiers will give you an advantage over the competition.
This masterclass is to find the right way to establish the contact with young models. This contact is reflected in the final result of your photos. The appropriate cooperation with people during the session is a very important matter for every photographer.
You will unserstand how to tell the story and what the good pose means.
We will determine how body positions of small models must blend in with background, accessories and factures that are most commonly used in the photography.
I will explain my editing process in Photoshop (you may take your laptop but it is not necessary). This is a very important point of the masterclass. Developing .raw files from the session and continuous .jpg file edition is the final and very important stage of working on the image. Pre-settings, actions, Photoshop, proven solutions, valuable editorial suggestions, you will get everything you need in order to create beautiful photos. You will understand how to step by step create an image from the moment you open a .raw file until you save the .jpg file that is ready to be printed out or put on the internet.
I will focus also on the marketing and sale. Although family & child photography is sweet and romantic, there are firm rules on the market. We will determine the main, proven channels to reach customers with your offer and we will try to arrange an effective development plan for your business. You will understand how important Social Media is in gaining new customers nowadays.
