The second of our portrait series is something special. The lovely photographer and model Lisette is currently 8 months pregnant (and counting) and will be joining us on Sunday for this extra-special portrait workshop. Our emphasis will be on portraiture – in casual styles and with the creative use of fabrics. We will be taking participants through lighting, posing, and directing styles aimed at photographers who wish to photograph family, friends, and clients in a soft, feminine style.

The Learning Experience
  • The etiquette of working with a model and other photographers;
  • Learning how to set up and use lighting to achieve soft portrait styles;
  • Directing and interacting with the model;
  • Exploring poses, framing, perspective, point of view, and timing;
  • Working in the studio environment;
  • Set-up and positioning of lighting.
Who Is This For?
  • Beginner to Intermediate photographers
  • You need to be comfortable and confident with operating your camera in manual mode
What Should I Bring?
  • DSLR, SLR, or Mirrorless with a working hot shoe;
  • Telephoto or prime lenses in the 35mm to 105mm range (full frame) or 24mm to 70mm (APS-C);
  • Batteries, memory cards, tripod.

Do not bring too much equipment. The workshop is about using your gear, not trying to decide what to use.
