Online Workshop: October 1st - 8th, 2020
Online Baby and Child Fine Art Workshop: October 1st to 8th, 2020
Come and join me for an online workshop that focuses on YOU and what you can learn to create the images you dream of.
The workshop is set up on a private online forum. Here, you will be able to ask questions and post images for feedback. I will conduct all portfolio reviews in the forum and give feedback on shooting assignments there as well. Our 5 webinars will be hosted in Adobe Connect and will be live, so you can ask questions as I go through the material.
*I will start the workshop by doing an in depth portfolio review of your top 2 images, discussing areas of strength in your images and aspects of your images that have room for improvement. I believe that constructive criticism is a vital component to progressing in any field. I offer CC at every step along the way in this course in hopes that it will help you grow and create well thought-out images.
*During this workshop, I will cover what I look for in locations and how I use them for both babies and children. You will get to see the behind the scenes shots and pull-backs of my most popular shoots. I will show you what types of locations I look for to create storytelling images, as well as how to search out gorgeous light while on location.
*I will cover how to use the environment, your camera, your lenses, and post processing to achieve tack sharp images while retaining a soft and dreamy quality.
*I will cover how to pose babies both asleep and awake and how to get natural-looking photos of children that tell a story and evoke emotion.
*I will reveal how to use wardrobe to create harmonious compositions that aid in the narrative of your images.
* I will discuss how to successfully brand your business and why it is important.
*Finally, I will finish the workshop by teaching you how to breathe life into your images and push them to the next level through hand-editing.
* Participants will meet on a private forum for portfolio reviews, feedback, and informative posts.
* Students should be familiar with layers and masks in photoshop.
* Please note that this workshop covers everything pertaining to outdoor photography, not studio photography.
My goal in teaching this workshop is that you all leave with the tools to compose the images that YOU dream of creating. This workshop will be tailored to your individual needs. Nothing is off the table. This workshop is all about you.
In addition to continual CC and shooting assignments, this workshop will have five live webinars:
Thursday, October 1st: 7:00 p.m. MST
Friday, October 2nd: 7:00 p.m. MST
Saturday, October 3rd: 1:00 p.m. MST
Monday, October 5th: 7:00 p.m. MST
Wednesday, October 7th: 1:00 p.m. MST
The webinars are roughly two hours long each (not including group questions), though webinars 2 and 3 tend to go about 2.5 hours.
These webinars will not be recorded and made available to watch at a later date. Recording is strictly prohibited. The webinars are only available as live webinars. That being said, they are repetitive. I give many examples of each concept, so if you are worried about not keeping up with the material, you shouldn't be. :-)

Participants will be required to sign a 2-year non-compete contract. This means that you cannot teach photography-related workshops for two years after taking this workshop.
