Erin will go over the basics of clean, professional lighting that are vital for every portrait photographer to master. She will go into detail about subjects like…

  • Setting up and using daylight-balanced studio lighting

  • Getting the most out of collapsible reflectors & soft-boxes

  • Working with your subjects to capture authentic personalities

  • Manipulating and controlling light to evoke a mood

 

Session 2: Hands on Workshop

Put what professional photographer, author, and educator, Erin Manning, taught you in the morning seminar to practical use with this unique Hands-on Studio Workshop photo shoot.

 

This workshop features full studio lighting set-ups, with models, so you can capture images with your own camera. Erin will help you create beautiful portraits by teaching you how to create different lighting patterns and how to use those patterns to bring out the authentic personality of your subject. She will also step you through critical subjects like lens selection, backgrounds, light modifiers, tripod use, exposure control and posing techniques.

 

Don’t miss this opportunity to work like a pro, with a pro and go home with images that will take your portrait photography to the next level.
