What will be covered?
The strategy and images that capture the “must get” images as well as the images that bring joy to the families. Some lighting and technical information will also be explored.
A lot of people may never photograph a wedding and yet much of what they learn in this W/S (workshop) are things they can use in everyday photography. It will make them a better photographer regardless of whether they are photographing their family or a bouquet of flowers etc.
