Shooting, Editing and Presenting Your Images To Tell A Story by Kate Trujillo

Superclass - Sat 14 Jan 2012

This 1/2 day presentation is for someone who already understand how to get proper exposures and who would like some more guidance and information on posing for Lifestyle photography. It's great for any range of photography skills.

It will not cover how to use your camera. It's all about finding light, utilizing available light, posing and editing naturally but artistically with Photoshop, and presenting the images to the client to encourage multiple image purchasing.
