How to Flatter Anyone, Really Anyone!

Most of our subjects aren’t models—far from it. So how do you help them look their best? What can you do to flatter even the most difficult body types or features? This presentation will take you through the four tools at your disposal for helping to flatter anyone, including posing, lighting, clothing and retouching. After this presentation you’ll be able to analyze body types and facial features and discern how to utilize your toolbox as a photographer to minimize problem areas and enhance your subject’s strengths. You will feel confident that you can help anyone, yes anyone, to look his or her best!

Posing 101

Ready to expand your posing skills? Join fashion photographer and creativeLIVE instructor Lindsay Adler for a hands-on introduction to the fundamental posing techniques every photographer needs to know. You’ll learn how to delight subjects with flattering results, every time. You’ll also learn about how your camera and lens choices affect posing choices, and how to select the gear that meets your needs. Lindsay will also teach you strategies for posing in more challenging situations — including creatively posing brides and grooms, connecting with shy subjects, and working with subjects who aren’t classically “beautiful.” Whether you’re a novice photographer beginning to move from candid shots to posed ones or an old pro looking for some new posing tricks, this course will give you the skills you need to make every shoot a success.

Conquering Evil Light

Sometimes photographers have to shoot in less than ideal lighting situations. Perhaps the wedding is midday in the middle of a field, or perhaps your event is in a fluorescent-lit room. Lindsay will discuss the top ten worst photography lighting situations and how to conquer them. She will explain which solutions are most practical and why one option may be preferable over another. You will leave this lecture feeling far less intimidated by poor light situations.


 In Search of Inspiration

Anyone can take a pretty picture. What makes your work different? Don’t just take a photograph, take the time to create a work of art. This involves preparation and conceptualization. Lindsay will discuss her main sources of inspiration, such as locations, props, different types of models, music, self-assignments and more. She will offer tips to help discover the inner inspiration hidden inside each of us.

 When I first started photography, I  was clueless and frustrated. I spent over a year or more  

 struggling in manual, believing that was how "real" photographers shot - but it isn't. It seemed like

 everyone else knew what they were doing; like they knew the "divine" settings; but I didn't.

 I was overwhelmed by over-technical presentations, and didn't dare ask advanced photographers

 questions; thinking it was "privileged" information. When I finally began to make progress, I found

 myself saying, "I wish I had know this when I started."

 So, I decided to write a workshop for beginners to give them a "wide-angle" view of photography from

  turning on the camera to shooting, editing, framing, fun with photos, and lots of cool tips in between.

Introduction; camera, lenses, equipment; light; exposure; exposure compensation; how to get sharp images; juggling aperture, shutter, ISO; elements of composition; flash, strobe, and fill flash; special settings like waterfalls, fireworks, and bokeh; portraits and landscapes tips; RAW vs JPEG files; organizing photos; basic processing /editing & software; framing; slide shows & cards; informative websites; legal aspects; fun with photos (including special effects and putting your photo on a magazine cover, etc.
