Shooting on Location with Fuzzy Duenkel
Award winning photographer, Fuzzy Deunkel will share the techniques he uses to photograph seniors on location, including:
1) Equipment Your tools can either contribute to or detract from the
creative process. Each item must be portable, quick, and effective.
Fuzzy will show how his choices facilitate speed and creativity.
2) Light Control Fuzzy will extensively cover lighting theory and
various light modifiers since total light control is essential for quality
images. Lighting principles are constant. But the tools needed will
vary based on whether working indoors or outdoors. Indoors, lighting
consists mostly of added lighting. but outdoors, light control involves
subtracting bad light and adding good light. If you're not doing this...
your images aren't as strong as they can be.
3) Selecting Photo Sites On-location Site selection is particularly
crucial for image design, posing inspiration and theme. Fuzzy goes to
every client’s home to create truly unique images. He’ll show how he
uses ordinary locations (and “ordinary” people) to produce extraordinary
results! The beauty of this is that you no longer have to drive
around looking for great locations. It's already there... for free!
