Dynamic Family Photography

Tamara Lackey | Confident Beginner

Family photography is a unique genre of portraiture in that it is one of the few types of shoots we do that, especially if we do it well, will be truly treasured for years to come by our clients, only growing more so over time. That being said, of all the genres, it can also be one of the more complicated shoots to do well - especially if you're interested in dynamic family portraits that share more about who a family is to each other than simply a staid, boring portrait.

In this high-energy, engaging workshop, you’ll learn a variety of group posing techniques and step through simple lighting concepts for a number of lighting situations, examining a variety of common obstacles that portrait photographers face and learning how to tackle them smoothly. Tamara will also walk through technical settings, composition, and even some post-production. There will also be hands-on shooting for all workshop attendees, with the ability to get all your questions answered while in the midst of your own family portrait session. 

Join Tamara Lackey for this small group, 2-day workshop, fully designed to kick your family photography skills up to the next level.
