Studio Portrait Photography Workshop

July 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


We are all moved by the dynamic possibilities of using artificial light to bring theme and story depth to our portraits. Whether you photograph children, adults, musicians or lawyers you need to have a trusted understanding of the lighting used to breath light into a portrait. Utilizing a steady set of lighting gear is a tool that every photographer should have and master.

Zack will expose you to a myriad of methods to create dynamic lighting schemes using reflectors, speed lights, and studio strobes both in the studio and out in the natural light. We will work with professional models and New Orleans musicians to help you tell the story of people…with light!

We will also learn bout posing, creating mood, and how to freeze motion. In addition, we will discuss the integration of the natural environment into your portrait photography which combines both artificial and available light into one striking environmental portrait.
