For any number of reasons, many people are excited about photography. While most will never become income-earning professionals, there are large numbers of enthusiasts who own the most sophisticated photography gear available on the market. Amidst all the clutter, does your photography stand out, or is it merely marginally good, or even worse, looks just like everyone else’s?
The RAW 101-II seminar equips photographers with skills focused on approaches to setting up your gear, dynamic fashion & portraiture composition, creative lighting techniques, and publication-quality post processing. The goal is to make your photography creations appear truly polished and professional.
Day One: Whether shooting with strobes or ambient light sources, there are specific techniques to nailing exposure each time. Attendees will learn how to create balance right in camera, saving valuable time in post processing.
Day One & Two: While the focus will be primarily on DSLRs, adequate focus will also be given to mirrorless camera models that are emerging as a mainstay of the photography industry. Attendees will learn about essential camera settings that are useful for portraiture and portrait fashion.
Day One & Two: On the first day attendees will learn advanced skills in studio and indoor location lighting. On the second day, focus will be on outdoor lighting. While Profoto strobes will be primarily used, the principles taught and illustrated with actual model photography are applicable to various types of flashes.
Day One & Two: During both days of the seminar, attendees will have ample opportunity to photograph seminar models in the studio setting (indoors) as well as outdoors in the environs of the seminar venue.
Day One & Two: On the first day, attendees will be introduced to common raw converters and image editing software. Major emphasis on editing and retouching will be done with Adobe Lightroom, with most advances features on Day Two.
