Portraits anywhere

  • Meet at Starbucks 134 North Tejon Street Colorado Springs, CO, 80903 United States (map)

Portraits anywhere is a hands-on workshop to teach you to be ready to shoot on-location. You will learn what  to look for in any location,  learn about the possibilities of working at any location and learn to use what you have available. 

Workshop is $60 per person.

We will meet downtown, Colorado Springs, CO, at the Starbucks by Acacia Park, by Tejon and Bijou and walk from there.

I will show you in real life, what I look for at arriving in any place, and what is the thinking behind a choice of location, lens, angle or light.

I will talk about preparing for the session, asking questions that will help you to compose your picture, how lenses can change your composition,  perspective and depth of field, which lenses will help you more and why,  adding and subtracting light, creative composition.

I will talk about having a photo in mind when creating a photo, so you can transform, crop, process and have the final image afterwards just as you saw it in your head.

You will photograph somebody in the group, so each person can have a portrait. 

I will help if you need, but I want you to be the creator of the idea.

You will learn more about breaking the ice, even with introverts.

You should create one portrait you are proud of in this workshop.

I will also explain my thinking behind an idea and show you some options to solve a location problem.

This will be a creative and practical workshop where I will show you that you can actually shoot portraits anywhere.
