World-renowned photographer and acclaimed creative director George Lange takes you on an eye-opening tour of his most inspiring tips and techniques. Follow along as George works with subjects of all ages in various environments and learn to harness available light and fresh perspectives for dynamic images. Transform everyday surroundings into compelling shots with props and unexpected angles and learn to compose a visual arc that powerfully conveys even the simplest story. Find out how to use little details to reveal tenderness and spontaneity and capture your subjects' character instead of just their smile. Learn how to use your camera to connect with the world, and take shots that capture love, laughter and everything in between!
Birthday parties, reunions and other events are a collection of moments. George encourages you to look for the "in-between" shots that happen when you're setting up for the "hero" photo. Learn how to use natural light to make everyone -- especially the guest of honor -- appear in their best light. Discover how shooting low will make your photos more engaging and why you should keep moving your eyes, feet and subjects.
Learn how creating a comfortable environment allows your subjects to relax and have fun, and why encouraging them to let loose -- dancing on the bed or having a food fight while sitting on the kitchen counter -- will create unforgettable moments. Learn to see and shoot the shots you wouldn't ordinarily take.
