Documentary Family Photography Indoors: Using Composition & Color Theory for Stronger Imagery (Bonnie Carrender)
Limited Capacity seats available

In this indoor shooting demonstration class we will begin with a discussion about documentary photography and how it can be used when photographing families. From there we will talk about how composition and light and shadow play such a strong part in documentary photography, how to micro-compose, and how to use the compose and wait method of shooting which was developed by the world renowned National Geographic photographer, Sam Abell. We will also address how colors play a role in how a photo is viewed, how to use color theory to our advantage when photographing, and how to intentionally shoot and cull for either color or black and white. From there I will demonstrate using the documentary approach with a family in a home-like hotel suite. The program will wrap up with attendees being able to photograph the family as well.

The class will include discussion, lots of opportunities for questions, a shooting demonstration, and attendee shooting.

Attendees should be comfortable shooting in manual. A 35mm lens or wider is recommended for documentary shooting.

Please note that this class will cover the same educational content as "Documentary Family Photography Outdoors with Bonnie Carrender." The difference is that one will take place indoors and the other outdoors.

This indoor boutique program will take place in a home-like hotel suite for a lifestyle shooting experience.
