Mickie DeVries

Edit My Images | Portfolio Review | Website Review | Open Book Q&A | Workflow Walkthrough | Problem Solving

Mickie DeVries is a hobbyist photographer living in West Michigan. She is the mother of two, and a wife. Mickie concentrates on capturing her everyday, along with environmental portraits of her two children. The main focus of her artistic intent is centered around capturing children being children. She describes her passion for photography as the following:

To be a child is a magical thing, it’s a world of exploration and wonder.  A world of mistakes and learning, happy and sad, feelings of accomplishment, failure, and perseverance.  It’s a sprinkler in the summer followed by a popsicle, it’s a dive in a leaf pile in the fall, hot cocoa in winter, and digging for worms in the spring.  It’s also learning to ride a bike, falling off and getting back on.  Its elation dashed with frustration which spurs determination.  It’s also a longing to be older, not held back by other’s guidelines.  It’s all of these things and more!

This is what drives my artistic intent in photography.  This is what I cling to, and want to preserve and document.  A wisp of hair, a knowing look, the happy, sad, funny, and messy, all of this is what my work encompasses.

My work is childhood through a mother’s lens.   My driving force is to capture these fleeting moments as time speeds by, and my children grow up and experience new things.  My hope is that my work resonates with parents universally, and speaks to their hearts of the wonders of childhood.

The post The Quiet Photographer appeared first on CMuniversity |The best online photography workshops and courses for beginner and advanced photographers.

]]>

BREAKOUT DESCRIPTION

Photography requires that the artist learn to really see the scene in front of them. Merely looking at the surface level is not sufficient, art is made when quiet observation reveals details that are commonly unnoticed. What makes the subject special? Is there a detail that can be emphasized to communicate the unique beauty of the scene? How can the setting be quietly modified to increase the impact of the story or mood? In this breakout, Megan will discuss a variety of topics, including how to work within the natural confines of a scene, shooting to create depth, establishing your camera as a natural extension of yourself, incorporating yourself into the scene and more. Through a PDF that discusses the pre-shooting and camera-in-hand choices you’ll make and videos that cover a simple, considered approach to processing as well as examining a handful of images that work and several that don’t, this breakout will lead you towards a quiet, thoughtful approach to photography.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

• Methods for making the most of the space and light you have
• Concepts to consider when making lens choices
• Thoughts on setting and enhancing a scene with minimal disturbance to the subject
• Tips for creating imagery with depth
• Megan’s approach to self-portraiture
• Steps to overcoming Photographer’s Child Syndrome
• Several techniques for making your camera feel like a natural extension of yourself
• Megan’s simple and quick approach to editing images in LR5

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

laurensanderson

Megan often finds peace and solace behind the camera. The act of putting camera to eye and studying the scene gives her a sense of groundedness and allows her to notice details in the world that oftentimes go overlooked in the hectic pace of life. Megan enjoys capturing her family of 3 small boys and high-school-sweetheart husband in the everyday adventures of their day to day, as well as during their travels. Currently, Megan’s family lives on the Eastern side of Sicily and has loved the opportunity to explore the beauty of the island, as well as Europe at large. A part of the Clickin Moms team since 2011, Megan has been teaching the workshop Shooting 201: Mastering Natural Light Indoors for 3 years and delights in having introduced hundreds of students to the magic that is light.

• How locations influence and contribute to Lauren’s style

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Edit My Images | Portfolio Review | Freestyle Session | Open Book Q&A

Kellie is a visual historian. A lifelong artist, she began her formal art training as a very young child and continued throughout her school years. At the university level, she discovered her love for the study of history and pursued that as her major. In photography, she has discovered the bridge between these two pursuits. As a wife and mother to four small children, she recognizes that history is happening all around in the fleeting ages and stages of her family. In both her personal and professional work, she aims to document not only the faces of the people in front of her camera but also the emotions and connections of those people to a specific moment in time. The messy, the magical, the mundane…she wants to remember it all.

The post Light and Lifestyle with Jennifer Bogle appeared first on CMuniversity |The best online photography workshops and courses for beginner and advanced photographers.

]]>

BREAKOUT DESCRIPTION

In this breakout, Jennifer shares her personal philosophy on light and demonstrates her approach to creating beautiful images in a variety of lighting situations. She identifies the challenges she faces and tools she reaches for in full sun, at sunset, overcast days, natural window light, and after dark. From shooting client sessions to grabbing images with her family at the bowling alley, she also breaks down how she decides whether natural or artificial light will achieve the look she wants in any given situation. Finally, she shares her love of incorporating flash into her family images in both ordinary and extraordinary ways.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

• Encouragement to seek out and use light in all of the corners of your world (not just the corners with perfect light.)
• Tools to manage both natural and artificial lighting situations.
• A breakdown of her personal approach to light
• A list of Jennifer’s gear (it’s shorter than you think!)
• Tips, tricks, and inspiration for making flash part of your daily images.
• Fun, after dark lighting experiments to try with your kids (flash or no flash, up to you!)


ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Jennifer Bogle lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and three beautiful, busy kiddos. She has a small portrait photography business, but primarily shoots for family and friends. She loves dramatic light and flash photography, but is not at all flashy or dramatic herself. She believes all things are possible with the proper application of coffee.

Michelle Turner

One-to-One coaching | Edit My Images | Portfolio Review | Freestyle Session | Open Book Q&A

Michelle’s photography is a wildly fun, all-or-nothing, bold, brazen, adventure-laden experience, akin to the likes of a magazine shoot. From New York City to Puerto Vallarta, Maine to the world at large, the places where she shoots shape her photography just as much as the subject. The end result? A brilliant, unmatched combination of people and places, hearts and havens, souls and surroundings, and sentiment and scenery. Michelle has published two books about fashionable wedding photography and speaks at numerous conventions and events throughout the year on posing and the use of off-camera flash.  She was named one of the 100 best wedding photographers in the United States in 2015. Michelle is an alumna of Brooks School, Georgetown University and she continued her studies at Dartmouth.  She currently resides in Maine and Pennsylvania, although her photography assignments take her all over the world and she spends a significant part of each winter in Mexico, Central America and Europe.

Michelle teaches on camera flash, off camera flash, and continuous light workshops here at Clickin Moms, where she is the Director of CMU. You can view her work at www.michelleturner.com.

Q & A

favorite teaching topics

Environmental Portrait, Posing and Composition, Capturing Events, The Business of Weddings, Color and Light

biggest lesson or piece of advice you want to share:

My first angle is rarely my favorite angle – don’t forget to play with your composition and perspective while you are photographing, as you may find the angle you love after you work the scene for a minute or two. If you are comfortable with the shot, switch it up – maybe you’ll find something you like even better!

a location you couldn’t do without:

The beach or a hillside with nothing but beautiful clouds and gorgeous sky in the background.

How a wide angle lens and new perspective changed my outlook on photography with Brittany Chandler

Finding Lifestyle is about the journey from a studio photography business, to no business, to a lifestyle photography business. It goes over a variety of topics like wide angle photography, how to interact with lifestyle clients, and tips for a business refresh. Inside you will find heartfelt moments, challenges, exercises, and inspiring quotes. Brit talks about her struggle with comparison, her love affair with her favorite lens, and how she uses the details to help narrate the subject’s story. She has included videos of her shooting a lifestyle session, and a video batch editing that session in Lightroom. Whether you are a hobbyist, professional in business, or somewhere in between, this breakout will have something for you.

First Steps with a DSLR is a 3 week beginner photography workshop designed to help new photographers move beyond auto mode and get the most out of their DSLRs. Students will learn basic concepts of composition and how to use natural light to their advantage. They will transition from shooting on the camera’s auto mode and simply pointing and clicking to shooting in semi-automatic modes (program mode, aperture priority mode, and shutter priority mode) and being a mindful photographer. Topics such as interacting with subjects, capturing the details, storytelling, and gaining inspiration will be covered. Students will gain knowledge and grow as photographers in a supportive and inspiring environment. It’s a great fit for anyone who just got a new camera, moms who want to learn to take better pictures of their children, or anyone getting started in photography.

Learn the fundamentals of composition in this new four week course. We will examine some of the basic rules of composition and apply them with weekly assignments designed to help you begin to think critically about your images. You will learn how to use basic compositional considerations such as the rule of thirds, perspective, leading lines, depth, and framing to create visually interesting and strong images. Weekly discussions will help students understand how minor changes in the composition of an image can affect the mood of the image as well as the viewer’s perception.

We’ll study the characteristics of light, with extra emphasis on the color temperature of light and kelvin in camera in week one. Then we’ll study how the characteristics of light change with the time of day and weather, paying close attention to the effect they have on the subject. Next, we’ll move on to overcast skies, open shade, additive and subtractive lighting, and we’ll finish up with using backlight effectively and creating silhouettes.

Prerequisites

Students should have a solid understanding of the exposure triangle and working knowledge of shooting in manual mode. You will need a camera, a fixed aperture lens and a 5 in 1 reflector. We spend a lot of time evaluating the color temperature of available light and setting in camera white balance. If your camera doesn’t have Kelvin capabilities, I suggest an Expo Disc, a Gray Card or equivalent. While you can take this course with or without human models, you’ll get the most out of this class if you have access to (a patient) one so that we can assess the quality of light and skin tones. Weeks 3 and 4 are spent outside so please take your location and the season into consideration. I do encourage daily shooting.

Mobile photography has taken the world by storm! From snapshots to fine art, your phone is a tool that is up to the task of creating stunning imagery that will be shared, printed, and cherished for years to come. Phone cameras are also wonderful tools for journaling daily memories and creating a deeper visual diary using artistic expression. You will learn to get the most out of your camera’s sensor, learn tricks and tips for managing limitations and maximizing quality, and actively expand your creativity and inspiration. Apps come and go, but the power of light, composition, and processing are timeless. You will learn to break down the essential components for amazing imagery and then find apps (and back up apps) to help you achieve your goal so that you can create the best images possible from the camera you always have with you.

Prerequisites

Even though this is a Level 100 Fundamentals course, I want to stress that Photoshop is a very complex program. I do break everything down for you but I want you to be prepared to dedicate a fair amount of time each week to reading the PDF, watching the videos, putting everything into practice and completing the assignment.

A nice clean edit starts in camera. So I will be asking you put together a working image collection of 10-15 images that you will share with me so that I can see where you’re at technically. If your SOOC (straight out of camera) images aren’t quite there yet technically, no worries. I have also put together a working image collection that you may pull images from throughout the course of the workshop. This will allow you to learn and practice on images with a variety of lighting situations, locations and subject matter. Keep in mind that while Photoshop can “save” images, I want you to enjoy the learning process without the frustrations that can come with an image that requires hours worth of work.

My videos and PDF’s were created using Photoshop CC and Photoshop CC2014. If you’re using CS6 you will find some differences but you should be able to follow along. If you’re using a version earlier than CS6, you’re going to find things are quite different and you may have difficulty following along.

You should have a calibrated monitor. You can’t see color and brightness correctly if you’re not calibrated. I highly recommend the 1DisplayPro or the older version which is the i1Display2.

Mastering Natural Light Indoors will empower photographers who have a solid grasp of working with their cameras in manual mode to learn how to see and utilize indoor light. It will give participants the ability to become comfortable working with available light indoors and enable them to make lighting choices that best support their artistic vision. By focusing on the study of light, photographers will begin to see the world in a new way and create a toolbox of strategies for maximizing the use of any indoor lighting situation they might run across. Understanding of light is foundational in photography and the excitement of learning to see and story tell with light is often a turning point for those who strive to create meaningful images. Join us and fall in love with the possibilities, and beauty, of light!

Are you bored with your photography? I get it. I’ve been there. You know how the story goes – I got a fancy new dSLR, learned how to shoot in manual, figured out the basics of natural light, and the rules of composition. As satisfying as it was to learn all that and be able to take a good photo, it didn’t fully satisfy me. I still craved something more…creativity. With this four week creative photography workshop we will push past the rules and explore creative technicalities and methods to spice up your photography. Learning these techniques, how to break the basic rules of photography, will help you tell the story you wish with your images. You’ve been taught to find the perfect exposure – use a low ISO, focus on the eye, and fear slow shutter speeds – but in this class you’ll discover how to embrace those rule breaking techniques and so much more. Let’s break out of the mold and tap into your creativity!

Prerequisites

Students should be experienced shooting in manual mode and have a solid understanding and experience with the technicalities of photography including ISO, exposure, shutter speed, aperture, and focus as we will be exploring those technicalities in a creative way. A basic understanding of light and how it influences an image is strongly suggested. A tripod and neutral density filter is not required but would be beneficial in week 3 when we discuss shutter speed. Lightroom and/or Photoshop might be helpful but editing is optional in this course so not required beyond resizing for the forum to post weekly assignments (you will receive some minor editing suggestions on your assignments). An open mind is a must since we will be exploring our creative photography choices throughout the month.

April Nienhuis has been a second shooter for the past six years and it has encouraged her to find a creative approach to photography. While the main photographer works her magic posing and taking the more timeless images, April searches for unique perspectives and compositions that will be complimentary. As much as she enjoys fun and somewhat quirky imagery, her work tends to elicit a tranquil factor that many find soothing yet mysterious. Not believing in tying yourself down to one style, she loves a bit of everything – color and black and white, natural and artificial light, traditional portraiture along with the more abstract. April Nienhuis is a self taught photographer located in rural Oklahoma. She lives with her firefighter husband of 13 years and their three beautiful children whom she homeschools. She is also the Director of Online Media for Clickin Moms. Her portfolio is available here.

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.

This dual discipline class covers it all– from shooting to editing, personal projects to getting and staying inspired. We’ll work to get you closer to finding out what “art” means to you and how you can capture your art with your lens. We’ll discuss what to do before you ever click the shutter all the way through the final image and all the steps in between. Assignments, tips, tricks, “do this” sections, and videos are all included in the materials. We’ll start with finding your inspiration, looking inward, creating an environment and an awareness to allow yourself to be inspired. Next, we will figure out how and where (as well figuring out the necessary elements such as location, time of day, and equipment) to create the shots that you’ve been dreaming up. In week three, we’ll cover how to maximize your time and location as well as your subjects to get those shots you know will floor you. And finally, week four is about how to edit your images to perfect them. At that point, we’ll also have a discussion about personal projects and how they can benefit you as an artist.

What makes a good story anyway? We know one when we hear one. But how do we see a compelling story in a photograph? What elements make a narrative image powerful? How can our shooting and processing lend to the story we aim to tell? In this course we will plan and build powerful narrative images. We will dissect images for their story elements, consider what stories you are driven to tell and learn how to intentionally construct strong narrative images before, while and after you press the shutter. The course contains optional daily shooting and discussion prompts culminating in a weekly assignment shared for critique. Students are invited to engage with the instructor in weekly group chats for further learning and inspiration.

Meredith Novario is a photographer who is lucky to live in Okinawa for the second time. She carries her camera everywhere much to the dismay of her children and husband. She is determined to capture the story of her family as it unfolds between the meltdown in aisle 3, the first home run and the battle over the Dora microphone. She imagines that someday they’ll thank her or, at the very least, forgive her. Before this colorful tornado of children started, she was a teacher. She is happy to be back teaching in the classroom where she belongs.

When you hear the word “pose” you may think of a stiff, boring portrait. While that word has grown unpopular in the photography industry, it is important to know how to guide and direct the subjects that you are photographing. Posing and directing is an art form. An image becomes more interesting, compelling, and flattering if emotion and connection are captured. In this workshop, we will explore the elements that make a portrait pleasing, such as light and composition. We will learn posing techniques and strategies for every subject from babies to adults, and includes specific tips on toddlers and families. Most importantly, we will talk about the importance of capturing emotion and connection within a portrait and learn how to direct your subjects into emotive portraiture. You will take your portraits from boring, to compelling and artistic.

Course Syllabus

Welcome & Preassignment

Week One

Reading: Understanding of what makes a portrait pleasing and the general rules of modern portraiture. Discussion of pleasing compositions and lighting. We go in depth on what capturing connection means and what an emotive portrait is; how to capture honest, connected portraits and why this is so important.
Assignment: Using what you learned about the elements that make a portrait pleasing (composition, light, pose, connection) submit one image that demonstrates a pleasing and connected portrait. With a single subject or more than one subject.

Week Two

Reading: Let’s talk posing and guiding! What exactly does that mean? This week you will learn how to pose and guide babies and children, with detailed examples and instruction. We go into each type of subject alone and then groups of this type of subject (babies who can’t sit, babies who can walk, toddlers, child alone, children together, etc) . We discuss challenges and give specific tips on working with babies and children. How do take your portraits from stiff to connected and emotive with all subject areas.
Assignment: I want you to spend time with one subject that is a baby and one that is a child. Submit a photograph of a baby and a child and explain why you chose the “pose” you did and how you achieved it.

Week Three

Reading: This week you will learn how to pose and guide women (specifics on high school seniors and pregnant women), men (high school senior boys included), couples, and families, with detailed examples and instruction. We talk about different groupings of each type of subject (men together, women together, siblings etc). We dive deep into each subject. How do take your portraits from stiff to connected and emotive with all subject areas.
Assignment: You will be submitting two images. One with your chosen adult subject and one with your family or couple subjects. With your submission, explain why you chose this pose and how you went about guiding the subject. Tell me why you feel this pose worked.

Week Four

Reading: You will do some soul searching in this week, extracting what it is that you want to capture when photographing a human. In this final week of the workshop, I want us to discuss and try small and subtle things that can take a portrait from posed and stiff, to emotive and connected. We will also discuss “rule breaking” and creative expression when making portraits.
Assignment: Before & after. This week I want you to take an image and recreate it using the techniques and tips that you have learned in this workshop. This can be an image that you took during or before the workshop began. The image can be recreated using the same subjects or new subjects.

If you do not have Photoshop, you can download the free month trial at the end of week 2 or I also supply two 3rd party options that have a trial version available. Part of week 4 goes over editing techniques in both Lightroom and Photoshop. If you do not own either, you can follow along and apply the concepts with whatever editing software you use. While not required, a calibrated monitor is always helpful.
Students should have a basic understanding of shooting in manual and how the exposure triangle works.

Join us on a reflective and invigorating journey for both your soul and your photography. In this workshop experience, we will explore ways to find inspiration wherever we are and connect our hearts and souls with our cameras. Craving something more than a technically solid body of work, we desire for our images to truly reflect who we are and what it is we have to say about our world. Each week, instructional materials, journaling, introspective exercises, group discussions and photo assignments with insightful individual feedback will help you uncover and embrace your personal vision and will equip you with specific techniques to infuse your photos with your unique perspective.

We examine a variety of topics including emotion-led shooting, capturing connections, responding to “imperfections”, and the intentional choices necessary to create photographs that are both emotionally impactful and technically strong. Come and be encouraged, prepared and inspired to communicate the beauty of your life with honesty and intention.

Jodi Arego is a natural light photographer living in Houston, Texas with her husband and three children. All too aware that “the years are long, but the days are short,” she views photography as a way to celebrate life and to express the stories of the heart. With camera in hand, she draws from her own deep sentimentality to show beauty in the simple, the ordinary, and the imperfect. Beyond photographing her own family, Jodi enjoys working with high school senior girls and their families as they celebrate their graduation milestone. Tex-mex on the patio, sand between her toes, black coffee, quote collecting and getting lost on Pinterest are among Jodi’s favorite things. Her portfolio is available here.

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.

Learn how to use your flash off camera to create and manipulate light in any situation, whether you are looking to lift harsh shadows during midday sessions, fill a room with light, or photograph your subjects after dark! We will cover the basics and then learn how to tweak the settings in-camera to enhance or play down the ambient light in the scene. From light position and modifier selection to the inverse square law and bouncing the light off-camera to fill a room for more of a lifestyle approach, we will engage in a variety of creative light assignments which will give you the confidence you need to capture images with ease in any kind of light!

This course has four PDFs, 23 videos (over seven hours of how-to videos) and covers everything you need to get started and move to the next level with your off camera flash work.

Lensbaby lenses are the perfect tool for nurturing creativity and strengthening your photographic skills. All Lensbaby optics and lenses are welcome to participate. Manual focus is one skill that can benefit multiple areas of photography, including nurturing flexible composition and thoughtful shooting. We will spend time honing this skill so that our hands, eyes, and mind all work together in an intuitive way. From there, we begin working with tilt and learn to understand how the focal plane shifts as an optic or lens moves. Finally, we will spend time learning how to integrate Lensbaby images into a storytelling sequence or thematic essay to add variety and emotion. You will find that the skills learned here will help you to become more confident in many areas of photography. Full participation students will benefit from the one on one guidance seasoned instructors, with years of Lensbaby experience, while study along students will benefit from observing and working through the lessons at their own pace.

Communicating with Color and Light focuses on the manipulation of color and light in Lightroom and ACR. Move beyond basic processing and learn how to process your images to evoke emotion. You will learn some foundational color theory and psychology to help you understand not only the how, but the why behind the choices you make. Each panel of the Develop Module will come alive as you learn to push boundaries and cover topics, such as creative curves, dodging and burning, manipulating texture, and color enhancement. You will also explore some Lightroom plug-in options that add unique finishing touches to your images. Creative thinking and boundary pushing is encouraged.

We all start businesses for different reasons. There is so much advice out there about how to run a business and it is so difficult to know which techniques are right for you. It can be very frustrating when so many outside sources are telling you what to do.
The solution to that frustration is to listen to yourself and your clients. This workshop is all about taking control of the finances, branding, and pricing of your business to make sure that you are thrilled with the business that you are running, and your clients are delighted to work with you and refer you. Running a business is hard! For it to be worth it you have to build a business you (and your clients) will love. Have you ever wondered how much money you need to make, how much money you should spend on your business, how to present yourself, what to say about your work or how to set your pricing? We are going to help each of you develop a personal, profitable, sustainable and satisfying plan for you to take care of yourself and your clients. This is a serious workshop where we’ll ask a lot of hard questions, and we’ll do a lot of hard work. This isn’t a workshop where someone else can just tell you how to run your business. But what I can do is help you make the decisions that are right for you. We’re not going to hand you the answers, we are going to empower you to take control of your own business, your own satisfaction, and provide the answers to your own questions.
business-201-video-placeholder
“I really loved the way Todd engaged the students with questions in both the Q&A threads and their critique threads. He used the socratic method to get us to do the hard work of figuring out what it is we really want out of our businesses, what we care about, what we do best, what we offer our clients that is unique. ”

Prerequisites

If you’re taking this workshop in order to get started in business on the right foot then you need to bring an open mind and a willingness to dig deep and think about your motivations and goals. While you may lack some experience, you are in a position to do almost anything, and you don’t have to play it safe. Much of what we cover in this workshop will be applicable to your business for years to come, even if you can’t implement it immediately. So if you’re willing to work through this material knowing that you’ll be implementing it over the next few years, then you’re in the right frame of mind to take this workshop. If you’ve been in business for a while – we’re going to look back through what you have done and try to figure out what has worked and why. We’re also going to ask a million questions to try and dig into why you do what you do and what the real value to a client is. If you can handle answering questions with questions, and if you’re willing to be frustrated and not have the answers handed to you, then you’re going to get a lot out of this workshop.

Todd Reichman and Jamie Reichman established their business in November of 2005, after a few months of part-time work they opened their commercial location in Dunlap, IL and went full-time with their business. Within their first year they achieved top-performing studio numbers according to PPA’s benchmark survey and maintained top-performing status through 2010. In 2010 they relocated their business to Atlanta, GA and re-branded themselves to specialize in high-end, elegant, family-focused weddings. In 2012 they were named to Junebug Weddings Best of the Best list. Their wedding photography has been featured in Real Weddings, Nikon World Magazine, Occasions, Atlanta Social Seasons, Atlantan Brides, Atlanta Weddings, Destination I Do, Jezebel, Birmingham Magazine, Atlanta Southern Seasons, and Bespoke Magazine.
Honest Bio:

We have booked great work and screwed up can’t-lose deals. We’ve shot at Ritz Carlton’s here and overseas, booked weddings in Europe and shot honeymoons in South America. We’ve also photographed in the nastiest Knight of Columbus halls, and caught something questionable in the shady hotels shooting “glamorous” destination weddings in one-horse towns where the nicest restaurant was the Subway jammed into the only gas station. We’ve made big bucks and we’ve also made less than the cake-maker. We’ve seen almost every wedding we’ve shot get published and seen almost nothing concrete return. We’ve booked ridiculous jobs and gone over 3 months without booking a single job (three times!). We built a very successful business, got crazy burnt out, ran away from our problems, moved across the country and built a whole new business from the ground up. We’ve had ups and downs and we’re still swinging. We aren’t teaching because we’re awesome or infallible, we’re doing it because we’ve made a ton of mistakes and figured out not only what works but why it works. Their portfolio is available here.

Elements of Design covers the major components of artistic composition and discusses how photographers can use these elements to maximize an image’s aesthetic appeal and influence its psychological significance. This course focuses on using distinct compositional elements to help you define your vision before you press the shutter, to increase the energy and interestingness of your images, and to ultimately broaden and improve your overall portfolio. We’ll discuss the elements of design, undertake a personal portfolio evaluation, and engage in upper-level analysis of several of the most critical aesthetic components used in composition. The instructor will remain available to you for all five weeks and will hold a webcam based “office hour” for live Q&A, demonstrations, and discussions during break week.

Fine Art & Visual Expression is aimed at photographers who have developed a solid understanding of the technical aspects of photography, and are ready to move beyond the rules. This five week (four weeks of instruction with 1 break week in the middle) workshop focuses on communication & intent in artistry, and pushes participants to consider and manipulate their in camera choices more deliberately, in relation to their vision for the final image.

Defining your photographic “style” can seem like an impossible task. In fact, you may even believe you don’t have a style! But, like fingerprints, every photographer has a unique and characteristic way of shooting. This course will allow you to sort out your unique vision by taking you through the steps needed to understand your impulses, amplify your voice, give your work a name, and head down your very own path. Through guided exercises, weekly discussions (in the forum and on Google+), live critiques (audio) and regular office hours (one session per week), you’ll learn not only to identify your voice and influences, but also commit to your style and curate your own portfolio.

While shooting in natural and available light,  Heather is most inspired while capturing the simple beauty in every day.  Having very modest camera equipment herself, she believes that with passion and hard work nothing should hold you back in your photography endeavors.  She shoots with a Canon 5D classic and mostly her 50mm 1.4 lens.  She finds editing as enjoyable as shooting and processes her images in ACR and Photoshop CS5. http://www.heatherlphotography.com/

Lissa Chandler grew up with a camera in her back pocket. Now that she’s grown, she is a wedding and portrait photographer in Northwest Arkansas (and, let’s be honest, still carries a camera in her back pocket). Lissa is a Canon girl and shoots mainly with a 5d Mark III, lots of prime and tilt-shift lenses, and processes all of her images in Lightroom 5. Lissa specializes in creative, emotive and magical photographs and LOVES photography with her whole heart. Like, big puffy-hearts it with a cherry on top.
