We all hear that we should stand out from our competition by being different, and painting your images is one way to differentiate yourself from the many other photographers out there. Learn to think more like an artist and enjoy some playtime with painting. Bring your laptops and a Wacom tablet if you have one for a hands on journey into painting in Photoshop….
In this creative workshop, we’ll work on the skills of analysis, visualization, and problem solving applicable to every on-location portrait job. To focus on just the essentials, we’ll work with simple equipment that’s easy to manage without an assistant: camera, handheld light meter, and portable strobe on a light stand. Using these tools, we’ll work to capture as many different, compelling portraits as we can, to ensure variety in our portrait work.
