Discuss this workshop
• Outdoor and studio glamour photography with models: theory, shooting and photo retouch (weekend).
• Shoot for a whole weekend with Giuseppe Circhetta and his team and learn how to approach to glamour & editorial shootings (production & postproduction).
• Description of the workshop including a short agenda if this is relevant.
Shooting outside is such a great experience for both the models and the photographer. Learn how to modify available light in order to get the best out of your shots with flash and light modifiers (both outside and in the studio). If you know proper technique, you can then focus on the model and you don’t waste precious frames setting up your camera. Understand the mood you’re trying to achieve, use the light as the creative means to express your idea, talk to model and let her know what you need, stir her up with your effective communication and then shoot, shoot, shoot! And after that, perfect your shots through a realistic and precise photo retouch process.
