This workshop will help you develop and expand your portrait photography techniques indoors with  studio lights and outdoors with natural light. We will cover posing, basic lighting, camera settings and composition. There will be models and a make up artist participating in this workshop, so all the attending photographers will be able to get great photos to help improve their current portfolio.

The workshop will be broken up into three sections: studio, natural light outdoors, and a post-production class where we will cover basic portrait editing in both Photoshop and Lightroom. If you have a laptop with Photoshop or Lightroom installed you are encouraged to bring it to follow along, but a video of the editing class will be made available to all workshop attendees after the workshop, so you will be able to practice the techniques at home.

Whether you are interested in doing portrait photography professionally or just want to be able to get awesome photos of your family and friends, this workshop will help take your skills to the next level.
