Allison Earnest Presents: Sculpting With Light - The Workshop April 25, 2009

Design Your Lighting to Flatter Your Subject

Though many factors contribute to a great image—lens choice, pose, props, etc.—every single subject requires well-executed lighting to enhance their appearance. This careful use of lighting to sculpt the subject in a flattering way is what distinguishes true artists from mere picture takers.
Acclaimed photographer and educator Allison Earnest shows you how to use flash, strobe, ambient light, window light, and a variety of light modifiers, and ventures into territory left unexplored - How to use light to flatter the unique facial shape of your client—whether they have a more round, oval, rectangular, long and angular, square, or traingular face.

With these techniques, you'll be able to accentuate the most appealing features of each subject and elevate the aesthetic appeal of your portraits. With problem-solving strategies for minimizing an array of perceived facial flaws, tips for working with individuals and groups, and much more, this class is not to be missed.

This will be a LIVE SHOOT with Allison, professional talent, and projected results.
