Put Your Portraits in Motion
Suzette Allen, Cr.Photog. CPP, API Jon Yoshinaga, Cr.Photog.
Storytelling images are the core of portraiture, revealing the beauty and uniqueness of our subjects, and we have spent decades refining our craft with still images. But technology has put video in our hands and made it so easy to capture the life and unique personalities of our clients! Now comes the new stuff—the foreign terms and the overwhelm or frustration of new technology… But, Wait! Suzette Allen, Adobe educator and pioneer of Hybrid Photography, along with her husband Jonny, will show you fast and easy (and profitable) ways to integrate some motion into your still portraits and painlessly edit and create finished shows (eProducts) with them!
At Light Pro, they will be coaching in a studio set up with all continuous lighting to show you how to pose and shoot video clips and create hybrid eProducts. There will also be a class where they will cover all the options and tech terms of the video/hybrid workflow, and be available for sunset or sunrise shoots with LED lights on location! Sunset shoots are the best! Students will have a chance to shoot as well, getting help with the settings on their cameras. (DSLR or mirrorless is ok). We will also be available to teach students to edit/trim videos with Lightroom 4 or 5, and assemble finished eProducts with video footage using Photoshop, Pro Show Web, and eTemplates. This is a must-see for anyone with their eye on video and a desire to see the magic in the future of our industry! Storytelling vignettes and Moving Portraits are the new language of our era—learn how to capture genuine personality with motion, revealing the fun and unique personalities of your subjects, whether they be friends, family or clients.
