Love in Motion: Creating Dynamic Family Photos with Heart and Joy (Erin Brant)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Learn to lead a family photo session that goes beyond typical posing and prompts! You'll be guided through an activity-based shoot that results in fun, beautiful and authentic family photography! In this live shooting demonstration (with a stylish and energetic family of five or more, children ages 2-10) you’ll see how a photographer’s unique personal energy and enthusiasm can be used to facilitate positive interactions as well as redirect or diffuse challenging situations. Families with small children rarely sit still and this class will teach you how to use all of that motion and energy to your advantage! The course will cover anticipating (rather than creating) moments, connecting with your subjects on a personal level, managing camera settings in different environments when both the photographer and subjects are moving; quick framing strategies; what to do if you feel stuck; and so much more. By prioritizing a positive, carefree experience and ditching expectations you will learn to create gorgeous, joy-filled photos with every family you shoot!

This is class will be most beneficial to photographers who are already comfortable with light and composition but want to develop deeper connections and authentic emotion in their photography. It will teach photographers who are typically more stationary to move with their clients, think on their feet, and get more actively involved in the fun!

The class will begin with a short introduction covering Erin's philosophy and approach to family photography as well her shot goals for the session. You'll then move on to the shooting demonstration. Q+A will take place during natural location transitions and at the end of the class.

Location:
This outdoor boutique program will take place on the beach/boardwalk.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn to quickly and efficiently scan your environment and available light to determine the optimal location(s) to shoot with families of different sizes and energy levels.
2. Develop confidence in being yourself with clients and see how your own ability to be vulnerable and connect impacts how they respond to you and the camera.
3. Receive new examples and ideas of specific ways to interact with children to energize, subdue, and redirect them when necessary.
4. Gain an alternate perspective on shooting kids and families that emphasizes encouraging motion and then recognizing shots as they are developing rather than posing and directing to a specific set look or idea."
