A week ago Saturday I had the pleasure of teaching three other photographers all day long. The goals for the day were for the workshop attendees to walk away understanding Natural Light and how to use it properly. Not only how to do it with me at the workshop, but how to do it on their own. It does the attendee no good if I set EVERYTHING up and they have no clue what to do when they are on their own. We started our day out with a High School Senior session. Each attendee had to choose a location/spot around the area we were in to have our model pose. Throughout the day we talked about posing and I would give them tips and advice as we went.
We took a coffee break to go back and sit down to discuss the session and look at their images. During this time I instructed them on posing and giving them details on how to pose guys and a couple. As a couple (if you scroll down you’ll see our adorable couple) was our next modeling session. Their project was also to jump online- pinterest was off limits- to find three new poses they wanted to try with this couple.
After a delicious lunch at New Orleans Food and Spirits we were off to go meet our couple in downtown Covington for their session. This session was all about seeing the natural light and how to shoot in full sun. 2pm is not the ideal time to shoot outdoors, but it can be done. Showing them tips and tricks along the way was my goal in seeing them now take what they’ve learned and pose this couple.
Next up was our group session. Which happened to be three teen girls who are best friends and were a blast! We laughed with them and enjoyed them so much.
All of our models made the day so easy for the attendees. They were up to doing whatever and were so easy going for us. I can’t thank them enough!!!
Now it’s time for the workshop attendees to fly on their own and rock their sessions by using the proper natural light and posing their clients like models!
Enjoy the Behind the Scenes of our day together!
