Posing Family Portraits with Michele Celentano
August 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$29
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly….
Family portraiture may not be the most “glamorous” genre of portrait photography – but I can promise you this – it is one of the most profitable. In the last 20 years of teaching internationally the number one thing most photographers struggle with is posing groups. Join me, Michele Celentano for a one night posing class that will dramatically change the way you feel about posing family portraits. From 2 subjects to more than 20 – I will show you an easy system that makes sense and teaches you how to pose any body type and any number of people together making everyone look their best.
You will leave this fast paced class with new insights into posing all body types – apple shaped, pear shaped, round, athletic, tall or short. You will learn how to shave weight off any body in camera (no PS required). I will show you how to puzzle bodies together to create group portraits. You will learn how to see and create shapes within your family groups and instantly create connection between your subjects. I will do posing demonstrations without props, using posing stools, chairs, apple boxes, standing and sitting on the ground. I will cover it all.
