No fake smiles and no flash in this workshop, where students learn how to capture the individual beauty and personality of your young subjects. Topics include finding the most beautiful and effective natural light and backgrounds, how to engage with your subject, tips for photographing all the age groups from newborn to teenager, and keeping the session fun for the subject (and photographer!). We also cover the fine art world of children’s photography and the commercial aspect, including setting prices and marketing. Weather permitting, students photograph children outdoors.
Students are required to shoot digitally and basic camera skills including shooting in manual mode are encouraged.
Lunch is included, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available on campus, private room & bath. $75/night
