Outdoor Portrait Photography with George Simian – Pasadena
June 29 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm
We all take more photos of people than of any other subject – but we can make them much, much better with planning for the activity, the light, and the camera settings.
This one-day workshop starts at 11:00am, with a couple of hours of planning and practicing: we will cover capturing models candidly or engaging them directly with the camera; the quality of soft vs. hard light, the direction of the light, and the use of reflectors; and the best camera settings for more effectively focusing attention on the subject.
We will move to a nearby park, and start photographing, working in small groups, and rotating locations, that everyone has a chance to photograph different models in different activities.
By 3PM we’ll be back in the classroom, reviewing the images made, and discussing what approaches worked best!
