Creative Portraiture: Using Water, Smoke and Color

In this class we will discuss how to come up with creative solutions to everyday photographer problems. We will discuss the creative process and how photographers can learn to think through any scenario they encounter. We will produce portraits and landscapes with smoke, gels, filters, water and other random objects to add variance in our work. This class will have a one-hour practical discussion and then a four-hour shooting experience focusing on adding randomness to the shoot to create imagery outside the norm.

THIS CLASS WILL NOT MEET AT PRECISION CAMERA. The class will meet at TerrAdorna (10900 Hibbs Ln, Manor, TX 78653)

We will not offer a reschedule attempt to individuals who don't show up to the Mock Wedding Workshop or a special event due to the high amount of resources required for that class.
