I know there are some very talented people out there who are looking for a little more knowledge to help them on their way in photography. I want to help. If there is one thing I’ve learned the last year, it’s that teaching is something I love to do.
This workshop will cover all the information you need to start (or enhance) your own photography business or simply take your photos to the next level through lighting and Photoshop. It is recommended that you have attended a session of The Day With Amy Photography Workshop and/or know how to use your camera in manual mode.
It’s going to be two and a half days of intense teaching and training. We’ll start Thursday evening with a discussion on the business side of things. Marketing, blogging, social networking, as well as paperwork and organization. I’ll share how I got started and answer any questions you may have about running a photography business. Courtney Kirkland will also be talking with us! She’s a talented photographer, web designer and graphic artist. I’m so excited that she will be joining us to share some of her knowledge with us.
Friday we’ll spend shooting. We’ll study both studio and outdoor natural light. I’ll show you around my studio and how I’ve set things up as well as instruct you on how to use studio lighting. We’ll have a couple young models come so that you can practice what you are learning. We’ll talk about posing and you’ll get a chance to watch what I do during a session. Weather permitting we’ll do an outdoor shoot as well! We’ll talk about posing as well as metering and lighting. Because no amount of post-processing can help you if your image isn’t good to begin with.
Saturday we talk about post-processing. I use both Lightroom and Photoshop CS4. You can bring your laptop (I’ll also have space for you to bring your desktop if you don’t have a laptop) and we’ll work on processing images together. If you don’t already have a Photoshop CS program, I recommend that you download the 30 day free trial before the workshop. We’ll start at the beginning and work our way through Photoshop. I’ll cover how to smooth skin, take away blemishes, lighten images, bring out color, and many other other steps I use in my post-processing.
