Portrait Lighting Workshop: Title: Put Them in a Beautiful Light


First Segment: 11-12pm in Store Keynote

Light is the key factor that makes or breaks an image, but the quality and properties of light for great PORTRAITS is 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 and Lumix Ambassador, Suzette Allen. Knowing how to light a face and recognizing good portrait light is key, but also modifying light and harnessing the elements of nature and architecture to refine it, is a vital skill for any environmental photographer.

Suzette will share her best techniques for environmental lighting and posing in an engaging presentation, and show you how to not only recognize good lighting but know how to modify light with reflectors, scrims, buildings, cement…and flash or LED light-- whatever it takes! She will talk about light direction, diffusion, time of day, some posing and clothing tips, and even a little segment on filming video for storytelling and dynamic Live Portraits.

Second Segment: Model shoot, 2-4pm on location tbd

Then, for the second half of the class, we will have a LIVE MODEL DEMO with all the tools we talked about to help you visualize and create good portrait light and then capture it with your camera. Bring a camera (and tripod if you want) to get some hands-on experience!
