According to Google, a picture becomes a portrait when the background, lighting, and emotion can evoke a sense of connection between the subject and the viewer. We will break down how to create powerful portraits using natural and studio lighting, connecting with your subject to allow their true selves to shine, and how to keep the style timeless. The ability to create portraits for others is an invaluable skill that families have been treasuring for lifetimes. We will focus on portraits of newborns, children, families, seniors, and adults. I will share my simple set up that can travel or stay in a studio and helps me create timeless yet powerful portraits.
We will also discuss when natural light becomes a better option over studio light. We will cover everything from the basics to the complexities of lighting, lenses, gear, settings, and how to connect with people of all ages.
