Workshops for Photographers
I am pleased to be offering Fine Art Newborn Photography and Business workshops in 2017. For details visit http://lindsaywaldenphotography.bigcartel.com
It is important to me as both a photographer and a mentor that I provide a custom experience that is unique to the individual I am serving. Because of this I only offer one-on-one or two-to-one mentoring sessions. Larger workshops and groups are not conducive to the style of teaching and level of customization I want to provide to you. Every photographer, even those starting out, has strengths and weaknesses. Before your mentoring session I will send a questionnaire to help me assess your needs and how I can best serve you. You will have the opportunity to select a custom teaching experience that can include any or all of the following topics.
I have experience using natural light, continuous light as well as strobe lighting in a studio. While I currently utilize a strobe lighting system in studio I am able to teach you how to maximize the use of whatever light source you are most familiar with. If you are interested in learning how to shoot with a strobe lighting system I have everything you would need in studio to learn these methods. Just bring your camera and I will walk you through it.
From custom white balance to exposure to focus, I will guide you through the steps to creating stunning images straight out of camera. We will play with different lighting techniques and angles to achieve those dreamy newborn images your clients will love.
A hands-on experience working side by side with me during a newborn session. We will cover every topic concerning a typical newborn session from soothing baby to wrapping and posing. Struggling with a specific aspect of the newborn shoot? We will spend extra time on those areas you need the most help with.
I will walk you through my entire editing process from culling images in Bridge to the essentials of Camera Raw and the perfecting of each image in Photoshop including advanced techniques such as composites and skin perfecting.
