What you'll learn in this photography class:

Photographing families and children can be both meaningful and artistically rewarding as well as financially beneficial. Family portraiture is a beautiful way to celebrate the gift of togetherness, strengthen relational bonds, build self-esteem in children, and document the family unit. 

Whether photographing children for the family album or creating timeless portraits for future generations to enjoy, this class will help you build the skills necessary to achieve your goals.  

Topics covered will include:

  • Creating aesthetic interest through camera exposure techniques such as choice of aperture to create varying depths of field.
  • Understanding lens choices; which lens to use in what situation
  • Tips for shooting large families and multiple children 
  • How to gain the cooperation of children within the ages and stages of development
  • Composition tips to turn your snapshots into works of art
  • Brief discussion of how to get started shooting family portraiture for income (ie: equipment needs on a budget, locations, marketing, etc.)

Come prepared to learn through lecture and image discussions. Participants are welcome to bring a few images for discussion with the group.
