Headshots are a prerequisite in the entertainment, modeling, corporate and business worlds, where the photograph of the person is a clear image that not only shows them off to their best advantage, but also captures their personality.
Headshots are valuable for a wide range of applications including getting work in film, television, commercials, and theatre careers, as well as use in corporate annual reports, press releases and other promotional situations. Every serious professional whatever your field of work or business, should have a good headshot of themselves at the ready. Constant updating of headshots to show your current look, are as important as the quality of the image, and this results in a strong market need for capable and competent headshot photographers.
This 'Lighting for Headshots' seminar will help you learn the basics of clean, professional lighting techniques that are vital for every portrait photographer to master. Light source selection, lens, backgrounds, light modifiers, lighting patterns and posing techniques are some of the critical subjects covered in this hands-on Workshop.
Bring your camera, with mid range and/or long zoom lens, so you can learn first hand and see the results of different techniques and light modifiers. Lighting set-up and live model are provided so you can get the most out of this informative seminar.Attendees should have a basic understanding of manual exposure and be able to set their DSLR for "custom" white balance.
