Workshop Information

In this workshop you will learn how to take beautiful, spontaneous portraits of your children in a variety of contexts. Taking great photos of children has much more to do with how you see the world around you than what equipment you use.

We will discuss the elements that make a great photograph (light, perspective, composition…) using visual examples, focusing specifically on portraits of your children.

We will discuss the technical aspects of how to achieve the look you want (exposure, adjusting your camera's settings, blurring the background, etc…) These techniques are applicable to furry family members too!

Please bring your camera to the workshop (DSLR's are preferred because we can do more with them, but other digital cameras are fine too!)
