Family Photography Class

Saturday, May 14 (backup May 21) from 9:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. $125. Auburn, WA

Family photography is so rewarding but can be challenging!  Nobody wants stiff and stressful family portraits and as a photographer, you can set the tone and have  plans to engage with a variety of families to capture their relationships.  Light and love is where it's at!

In this class we will:

  • talk about solutions to challenges with family photography, including: working with different ages, making photos fun and engaging, being flexible and making connections.
  • we'll shoot 3-4 different family mini sessions with varying ages and dynamics.
  • I'll share how I think through and approach a session from beginning to end. A game plan helps a ton and there's a reason why I shoot in the pattern that I do.

Golden Hour Photography Class

Saturday, June 4 (backup June 11)  from 5:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. $125. Auburn, WA

Golden light is absolutely gorgeous to shoot in and is a favorite of photographers for good reason. 

In this class we cover:

  • challenges of shooting in golden light like inaccurately exposed images, positioning of people, finding spots that work well.  
  • the benefits of the golden hour: warmth, back lighting, dimension.
  • I run you through edits of a color and a black and white golden hour image in Lightroom.
  • we'll shoot together for an hour in a gorgeous location using several spots to play with the light. With our model, I'll talk about positioning, interaction and lighting techniques. We'll finish by shooting silhouettes at sunset together.

I think you will get much more out of the class if you are shooting in manual mode.
