Children`s Portrait Photography

Tamara Lackey | Confident Beginner

Children's Portrait Photography is fun, can be very fast-paced, and is seemingly unpredictable - unless you know what to plan for, before and during a shoot.  It is also very much about joy, light, soulfulness and authenticity, and that is what this workshop is focused on: you better uncovering in your work.

In this intimate 2-day workshop, we will discuss how to plan for a successful shoot, we will work through photographing with proper exposure, and we will be shooting with simple indoor and outdoor lighting that enables you to capture images sharply while freeing you up for more engaging interaction with your subjects. In addition, all participants will learn from hands-on shooting, photographing a series of children, focusing on posing, expression, and how to overcome challenging situations.

The workshop includes on-the-shoot Q&A, so plan to bring your gear. Lastly, we will step through basic post-production and student image critiques. Prepare for an intense but fulfilling two day workshop with this Children's Portrait Photography workshop with Tamara Lackey.
