Make Better Portraits with Simple Tools! (this event is SOLD OUT!)

In this class, Paul will discuss the camera settings, lighting, lens selections and strategies to help make better portrait photographs of family and friends. He will also go into lighting considerations and ways to use simple tools such as reflectors and diffusers to tame natural light and then when to use supplemental light (whether speed lights or more powerful lights) and how to modify them.

The goal of the class presentation is to show how you can use modest tools and combined with great cameras and lenses make powerful portraits that are evocative and repeatable.

WPPI - Las Vegas - Photo Gathering

On the Monday before the Tradeshow starts at WPPI (the largest gathering of wedding and portrait photographers in the USA) I will be meeting with photographers that want to know if Sony mirrorless cameras are for them.  I will have my own personal gear with me as will fellow Sony Artisan of Imagery Marc Weisberg who will be presenting with me.

Both of us are former long-time Canon DSLR shooters and we switched in 2014 and 2015 respectively.  We're excited to help you make the transition from DSLR to Sony mirrorless and will be there to help.

The Location:  The Westgate Hotel near the Las Vegas Convention Center.  Stay tuned here for more details about the exact location.
