Take the next steps in your photographic journey with a fun and challenging project! In this class, the follow-up to Startup Library: Photography, freelance photographer Angier Dornier guides you through shooting a day-in-the-life lifestyle photo session with a real family. By the end, you’ll walk away with a whole new appreciation for your camera, using it to capture special moments that your friends, family and clients will treasure for years to come.
Begin with an introduction to lifestyle photography as Angie discusses the importance of storytelling. Then look at cameras and her go-to lenses that will help you achieve professional-looking images.
Focus on perspective and vantage point as you apply the principles of light and shadow to manipulate the look and feel of your images. After that, explore creative options with reflections and shooting in black and white.
Angie shares the tools and tips you need to prep for a family photo session. Find out how to determine what the family wants, make people feel comfortable and pose correctly, and be open to the magical imperfection of candid shots.
