    What's Available and How to Find the Best Fit for Your Needs
    Mirrorless cameras are quickly becoming the go-to choice for most photography needs. Sony has become the leader with Nikon and Canon just releasing their entries into the full frame mirrorless arena, but their are great choices available from Fuji, Panasonic and Olympus as well.

  • NJCS: Corrective Techniques for Real People Portraits with Bobbi Lane

    Class Code: UUU8204

    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    The dynamic duo of Bobbi Lane, the Mistress of Light, and Lee Varis, the Sultan of Skin take you on a photographic adventure to master the art of creating flattering and effective portraits of real people. You will learn the essential techniques for photographing normal people in the real world, without fancy wardrobe, expensive hair and makeup, or extreme and difficult retouching.

    Bobbi will show how to use corrective techniques to overcome challenging subjects and Lee will take the results and refine and finish the image into a marketable photograph.

    Shooting tethered into the computer, we demonstrate comprehensive lighting techniques and effective posing, helping make the most pleasing portraits of difficult subjects: thin or heavy, spectacled, young or old, balding, red or wrinkled. Lee will take the captured images to the next level with Lightroom and Photoshop enhancement techniques for quick fixes and complete makeovers that don’t require special artistic talent, but instead utilize the power inherent in the basic software without extra plug-ins or extensions.

    These techniques apply to all kinds of portraits: personal headshots, business, couples and families. Learning these skills help you make stronger and more saleable images.

  • NJCS: High Key and Low Key Lighting with Bobbi Lane (Fujifilm)

    Class Code: UUU8241

    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    This seminar with Bobbi Lane presents essential lighting techniques and tools for the photographer to create the impact and range of mood for the portrait.

    The classic High Key is a pure white background with the subject well illuminated for a bright, happy and lively feeling. Low Key traditionally is a dark or black background, with more side lighting and shadows for a dramatic and evocative portrait. Light is the essence of a successful portrait, so understanding the three key elements; direction, quality and depth, is crucial. Controlling these elements is essential in terms of retaining detail in both shadows and highlights without sacrificing your choices for establishing mood.

    We will demonstrate many creative methods of lighting and why to choose certain modifiers. The technical set up for high-key and low-key lighting will be fully explained and demonstrated!
