Over the last thirteen years, I’ve refined a method of creating beautiful pregnancy images and I’d like to share my technique and insights with you. As a pregnancy photographer, you’ll have the opportunity to create images that will be handed down for generations as family mementos. As an artist, that feels great. As a business person, assuming you sell your photography, it makes the cash register ring, too.
Photographing pregnancy is different from other types of portraiture in several respects. First, the emphasis is usually not on the face, nor on the figure as a whole. This means the lighting has to be different, as do the angles that you photograph from. Another huge difference is that the subject, in all likelihood, will not have her usual level of grace, fluidity or energy. And very possibly, she’ll be more self-conscious about her figure. All of this adds up to different challenges then you might be used to.
In this workshop, You will learn a lighting system that provides plenty of flexibility and drama. I’ll explain what a low-key lighting scheme is and why it works best to emphasis the subject matter. You’ll learn about what clothing and props work best and what ones don’t work. And I’ll gives you tips on how to elicit a variety of expressions from your subject, a sure-fire way to boost sales.
You’ll receive instruction and you’ll have time to create your own unique images under my tutelage, complete with a model release allowing you to use the images in your advertising.
