Tamara Lackey, photographer
Consistently capturing images of children that are authentic, expressive and technically strong is often more challenging than it appears. Join Tamara Lackey who has shot over 1,000 children's photography sessions, as she walks you through the specifics of how she photographs during the sessions, including behind-the-scenes footage of actual shoots, with an emphasis on shooting cleaner, knocking out problems before they arise-or as they occur-and connecting with your subjects more quickly, which is so important when working with children.
If you are interested in the subject of children's portraiture--one of the top three most popular subjects for professional photographers--then this event is not to be missed!
