Are you ready to take your newborn photography to the next level?
In this hands-on 2-day mentoring you will work with Lizzy to practice and perfect your newborn photography. While online education is great, being able to learn in person in real time will help you achieve the biggest improvements in the shortest amount of time.
This is a highly-interactive 2-day workshop, held at Lizzy's commercial newborn photography studio in Downtown Mesa, Arizona.
We will begin with a discussion on safety, and use the Stand In Baby to demonstrate safe handling practices. Then you will assist Lizzy as you watch her move through her "newborn posing flow" with the first newborn. Lizzy will help you see the small differences that make a big difference in posing, camera angles and lighting, as she provides instant feedback as you capture images.
Then, Lizzy will be YOUR assistant for the second, third and fourth babies, as you pose and photograph them. After the babies leave, we will work through the editing and back up of images.
The second day also includes a discussion on business.
You will be posing and photographing 4 newborns over 2 days. You will be able to use the images for your portfolio, social media and website.
This includes a detailed workbook with images and instructions to help you continue your practice and education after the workshop, as well as continuing image critique in a private online mentor group.
Lunch and light refreshments are included both days.
