Feb 11 Talk -
Why we should pay attention to our subjects and
give them their best possible image.
We’re going to discuss how we can allow light to create an image that is more
than a picture. We can create shape, mood, direction, and even feelings using
light and learning how to manipulate it.
Posing can make or break an images look, feel and composition. Lets talk about
why we position clients and not just snap away.
