Not Every Client is a Model
presented by Jessica Robertson, M.Photog., Cr., CPP, FP, SP
From the top of the head down to the toes, Jessica will cover how to flatter every body shape and size! Small adjustments to lighting and posing can make all the difference in the final result for your client. Not every subject is a model and REAL clients have real bodies. Thinner, thicker…wonky-eyed, and so much more will be covered. Jessica will help train your eye to see client areas of concern and then demonstrate how to make your subjects look great using posing, lighting, planning, and good communication!
