The Golden Child: Children's Fine Art Photography Inspired by Light (Dana Leigh) FULL
Limited Capacity full

Nothing inspires me more than light. In fact, light is almost always what prompts me to pick up my camera. The Golden Child boutique program will feature a sibling group of 2 children styled for a fine art session and will take place at golden hour on the plantation grounds. I will be demonstrating my process of combining curiosity with available light to create and execute a vision, resulting in the creation of beautiful art. Together we will examine many kinds of light and how to use light to communicate different moods and convey emotion. I will also demonstrate how I work with children to keep them engaged, having fun, and a part of the creative process. We will delve into the various ways I play with light to add more magic into the scene and incorporate it into an artistic vision. This includes sun bursts, lens flare, in-camera double exposures and more! Lastly, we will find shadows and reflections and I will explain how these techniques can be used to tell a story and capture genuine emotion. Boutique participants should plan on shooting alongside me and should be proficient in manual mode. Childhood is full of magic and beautiful moments and I want to show you how to capture the wonder of it all with your cameras!

This outdoor boutique program will take place on the grounds of the plantation.
