THE BLACK SERIES – New York (USA)
The successful workshop concept for my book comes to New York!
At this course will take you through the entire process of shooting portraits. Students will be guided through such topics including finding the right locations, working with minimal equipment, shooting techniques and styles, lighting and posing and the most important part of portrait photography – communication with the model.
We will work outdoors with two models and two coaches. Nothing more than natural light is needed to create images like you see at the bottom of the page. How we achieve that results? Thats exactly what we will show you at this day!
An intense day!
We will create fantastic pictures with the natural light, discuss and show you how to work wonderfully with little resources, if you read the light correctly! In order for us to have a perfect work environment and to be able to get the most out of this event, this event is also limited to 8 participants with two coaches.
2 coaches, 2 Models!
Your coaches at this workshop are Marco Gressler AND Stefanos Spanidis. Also with us are two awesome models.
We will keep the introduction short and then proceed to practice fairly quickly. The shooting time of each one is individual coaching time. A relaxed work is very important to me! We have enough time.
