Natural Light Fashion Photography Workshop w/ MOISNOMOIS

Saturday, February 6th at 1pm

In this workshop, Alex AKA @moisnomois or Sasha, will introduce his style of shooting and retouching – from the very conception and pre-planning of a shoot, to the actual shooting and techniques he utilizes, and finally the process he goes through when culling and editing his final images. We will begin with a discussion about models, locations, equipment, and other necessary preparations. Then we will watch Alex shoot with a model and hear an explanation of his methods. After this, our workshops attendees will have a chance to do some shooting of their own with them model. We will take a short break for some light refreshments, upload files to our computers, and get a chance to network with fellow photographers. Finally, from start to finish, Alex will explain his process of choosing images and take you through the process he uses to edit the photographs (as you follow and edit along with him).
