2017-01-13 Precision A - SuzetteAllen

Join Lumix Luminary Suzette Allen as she walks an intimate class through the process of creating hybrid portraits, images that combine elements of still photography and video.

The workshop will take place over two days.

Fri 9-1 for a Small group, Hands On Live photoshoot

Sat 9-5 for an classroom style post processing class


Day one, Friday, Jan. 13, will be a four-hour photo shoot from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the beautiful Neill-Cochran House Museum, 2310 San Gabriel St. We will provide models and continuous lights for the shoot. Panasonic will provide camera equipment for you to borrow, or you can simply bring your own gear.

This portrait intensive workshop will give you all the tools and perspective you need to do family and personal portraits in or outside a home. Learn posing, lighting and composing to create still or hybrid portraits.

Day two, Saturday, Jan 14, Post Processing Magic Lessons, will be an all-day digital workshop at the Precision Camera and Video classroom and studio.

Day two will provide all the tools to get to that final product, using lightroom and photoshop to not only select and refine the image in Lr, and retouch and enhance in Photoshop, but ALSO include a bit of video ending with Lr and PS as well, showing you how to create a short hybrid product! 

Price: $99 (includes both days).THAT is a deal!!
