Outdoor Portrait Lighting and Posing
SATURDAY August 4, 2018
Light is the key factor that makes or breaks an image, but the quality and properties of light for great PORTRAITS are very different from the best light for landscapes, travel or general photography! Learn the vital skills of seeing and creating beautiful light for people and faces with Portrait Artist, Suzette Allen. With over 20 years of experience in portraits, Suzette will help you not only recognize good lighting but know how to modify light with reflectors, scrims, buildings, cement… whatever it takes! She will talk about light direction, diffusion, time of day, some posing and clothing tips, and even a little video for storytelling and dynamic Live Portraits.
