The Light Painting Portrait – Sponsored by Litra

Michael Novo Portrait

The session is sponsored by: Litra

“I’ve never seen that before” are the five words I love to hear when a client reaches out to my studio. In a wedding and portrait industry that continues to be overwhelmingly more saturated with photographers of all skill levels, there’s a stronger demand each day to be different and stand out from the crowd.

Using a technique called “light painting”, you will witness and then create art pieces that are unlike any other on human subjects in complex environments. In this class we will first go over the various introductory methods and tools that are used to paint with light and then you will apply what you have learned in your own session. Finally you will be guided through the editing process which is where you truly add your own flavor to the final piece.

You will learn:
Gear review and the importance of selecting the right tool for the job.
Strobe light vs flashlight.
Composing a scene in your mind before image capture.
Client management and posing.
Lighting angles and techniques.
Photoshop adjustment and editing.
How to be awesome in general!
