Evening In-Person Presentation:

Make It or Break It Lighting
by Kari Douma

Originally scheduled for March 21st - has been moved to March 28th

Lighting is what makes or breaks a great portrait… it's what separates the cream of the crop.  Join Kari as she goes over lighting effects for any and every situation, and learn to take your work to the next level.  Kari will demonstrate her favorite lights and modifiers, as well as flattering poses and preferred techniques. We will have models for you to photograph and practice the newly acquired portrait skills. This hands-on demonstration will help you raise your confidence and will set you apart from your competition. This is a great portfolio building session under the watchful eye of the Master Photographer.

Members are free. Guests must register and pay in advance. Register early for a discount. No refunds.
