Introducing a new, and interactive, 4-week online workshop…The Emotional Child
As a mother, I’m drawn to the pictures of my children that showcase who they truly are as people. Wyatt is a feisty little spitfire, who also happens to be the sensitive soul of our group. Molly, on the other hand, is an independent girl whose curiosity about the world drives absolutely everything she does. So, while it’s nice to capture their beautiful smiles, with their faces looking directly at the camera, my favorites are always the ones that show their honest emotion (eye contact or not). My favorites are always the pictures that show exactly who they were at that moment in time, on that day, during that month, in that year.
As a photographer, I don’t see it any differently. I work to get images with natural joy, honest contemplation, or genuine need for comfort. If I can’t show who the kids and families that I photograph really are, then what the heck is the point?! I want them to have fun, and play with each other, and maybe get a little dirty…and if someone has a meltdown in the middle (because, let’s face it, sometimes being little is tough), all the better! All of these feelings are what make life so amazing! Those feelings, and our experiences, are what make us who we are.
My workshop, The Emotional Child, is all about intentionally fostering more honest emotion in your child and family imagery. If you’re a photographer, whether professional or hobbyist, and are looking for more authenticity and interaction in your images, I invite you to join me June 8th for the start of this 4-week class.
The course will dive into the different aspects we all need to consider when shooting for true feeling in imagery. Learn to create experiences for your clients that will cultivate emotive responses. Explore ways to encourage and include a range of emotions in your personal images. Discover how to intentionally capture genuine emotion & responses.
In addition to weekly materials, and a video demonstration, each participant will receive personalized video feedback on their weekly assignments along with opportunity to explore editing techniques to finalize your total image concept.
