Don’t do boring. Push yourself.
That is what this class is structured to do. Four unique sets will be photographed by attendees, implementing creative elements that are far from boring.
*Earth – This set will be all about earthy, natural tones and layers of textures. Students will leave with a whimsical and moody image. The contrast between the “earth” elements and the wardrobe of the model will make this concept come to life.
*Wind – Creating wind inside isn’t as hard as it may seem but doing it creatively, that takes forethought. The maternity model will be in a custom gown (with wings and other props available if the student desires). This set will tell a story. The “flying dress” that everyone is so fond of is getting an upgrade!
*Fire – While using real fire is ideal (and doable in studio so don’t rule it out!), we will keep things safe inside and have a set ready for a Senior model, implementing gels and AI generated fire, to be added in post.
*Water – Acrylic. Water. Strong shadows. Seminude maternity model. Set 4 is all about effectively using water when the normal tools are not available.
In this hands on, interactive class, attendees will learn to correctly set up, light and style sets, designed to push the boundaries of normal portraiture. We will briefly walk through the sets, noting the “whys” for each. Then, attendees are split into groups to allow everyone an opportunity to work with each set and model. This is a portfolio building class, meaning we will ensure each student walks away with images that can be used to build their brand.
At the end of class, attendees will be provided with a link to the private group created to ask additional questions, post finished images, and also a link to get any AI/digitals needed for postproduction, with step by step instructions to utilize.
