The reason many of us have delved into the world of photography is to capture the fleeting happenings of our lives. Every day that passes is gone forever, yet your camera gives you the opportunity to record that vanished day. Come join Melissa Stottmann and discuss how to photograph every life event, including the (seemingly) ordinary moments. Together, we will explore the broad genres of family photography and bring it in closer, down to the very small details you are likely to forget. Come away from the workshop with a plan for the everyday, the special days, ideas to stay motivated, and a system for keeping everything in order.

What do you do when there’s not enough light? How do you deal with ugly overhead lights? What if the lighting is flat and gray? The ability to understand and manipulate light will empower you to shoot any time and in any location. Get natural results from your speedlight, make the most of artificial lighting, and learn to use light to create beautiful images that look anything but “artificial.” We’ll discuss when to use TTL and when to use manual, how to diffuse and bounce your flash, and how to use continuous light sources (like the Ice Light, video lights, and standard flashlights) to complement or replace your flash. Whether you’re a natural light photographer ready to take your speedlight out of the box for the very first time or you’ve simply been unhappy with the look of your images with flash and continuous artificial light sources, this course is for you! Let’s demystify the process and create beautiful light! This course has four PDFs, 13 videos (three hours of how-to videos) and covers everything you need to start creating beautiful flash and continuous light images. No flash experience is necessary, and you only need a flash (with both TTL and Manual mode) to get started.
