Model PhotoShoots Made Simple.Are you ready to start Photographing models, actors, or just humans subjects period but don't know where to start?
You are not alone, in fact most photographers start by taking photos of just about anything that comes into view of the front of the camera mostly abstract non human. Why? Most are scared not knowing the process or knowledge to setup a session with a model or even develop the idea for the shoot. To add to all the unknowing, the idea of working with people you know or don't know, it's puts you in a all out panic thinking "I need to buy this light, I need a better camera, I need that lens" all before truly underst&ing why? But wait! What if I told you, the truth is, once you underst& the concept & direction of the shoot, the tools you need to accomplish this goal comes into Clear Focus. In this personal training course, we take one step at a time putting together an entire photo shoot from start to finish.
We start with creating idea boards, this is where we put together a collection of images that closely represent our vision we have in mind for the photo session. Next, we explore different lighting styles/modifiers that help us tell the story before completing the actual photo shoot. Most photographers at this point may have little experience using a flash or a good selection of lenses so In this section we use a 3d lighting program to help us explore the effects of just about any lighting tool & how different lenses effect the subjects real time. Trust me this process helps you save money, only buying or renting tools that reflect you're style & vision.
Next it's time for the live photo shoot where we follow through with all the planning put in place. On set we make any adjustments needed & execute the plan. Let's proceed to post production where we explore how to best select the images that captured our expected vision. Here we use lightroom to audition what photo's work best for our use before we head over to photoshop where we build on the changes made in lightroom to complete the project. Now that we have a complete photo ready, does it make the cut to our online portfolio? Find out how we market the photo to create interest from models, actors, magazines & more.
