Mysteries of Night Photography

Just becuase the sun went down, does not mean our cameras need to be shut off. There is a whole beautiful world out there to photograph at night. Night photography can often come with challenges, but with patience, the understanding of our cameras, and using the proper equipment, we can create stunning images. In this seminar we will focus on learning settings, composition, and tips and tricks to inspire you to photograph those night scenes.

The Art Of Travel Photography and Storytelling with Erica Robinson

Travel photography is a broad genre covering so many bases. It’s an incorporation of landscape, environmental portrait, wildlife, street photography, and storytelling, all rolled into one. Because travel photographers are naturally wandering souls, we strive to document the world around us in its purest form. And share stories! During this travel and storytelling seminar, we will discuss how to build a photograph with our composition while being sure we know our cameras settings, as well as understanding our location, and how to show stories within our travel photographs. Time to think outside of the box and get creative!

Illumination vs. Lighting: How and Why to Use Multiple Flashes with Jonathan Thorpe

Learn how multiple light sources and lens choice can help dictate your photos narrative. By creating a mood and feeling within our photo using these resources, you'll also start to create a style that is sure to stand out amongst the rest!

As photographers, it's more often than not our job to tell a story with our pictures. For Washington, D.C. photographer Jonathan Thorpe, a portrait is never just a portrait. Behind every portrait is the potential to tell a story, and it's up to us as shooters to evoke that narrative and make more than pretty pictures. 

For Jonathan, the most effective way to create narrative in an image is with lighting. Off camera lighting can be used in many different ways to evoke emotions, or guide your viewer around the photo and precisely tell your story.
