Good Morning Everybody,
We had a nice time in Ontario, CA these last couple of days – from our relaxing arrival Sunday afternoon to the terrific group of photographers that attended Monday night’s program. I even grabbed a few photographs while sitting on our balcony just taking it easy on Sunday afternoon.
Last night’s CBTL2010 presentation turned out to be a jam packed program. I’ll tell ya’, it was almost standing room only. We set the room with 260 seats and that still didn’t seem to be enough.
I also want to mention That it one of the nicest group of photographers on the road this year. You could just feel it in the room. As usual, a great time was had by all. THANKS to everybody who came on by and stayed late!
Today we head across town to Woodland Hills, CA and then on to Sacramento, CA. Only two cities to go – time seems to have flown by.
Posing Problems – Easy Fixes
I’ve got a good Technique Tuesday for you today. I’m receiving many requests on today’s topic from our Skribit “request line” so I thought today would be the day to answer some of those requests. Yep, lots of folks want to know how to make their clients look good in front of the camera. Heck, the client wants the same thing, don’t they?
When aspiring photographers ask me to critique their work, I see two issues routinely happening in many of the photographs I view. First, it seems that the photographer may seem a bit uncomfortable in knowing how to arrange the subject in front of the camera to make the subject look relaxed, easy and comfortable.
The second is that the subject expects some direction from the photographer, they are the Pro. Too often the subject does not receive that direction and just assumes a static position in front of the camera.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you one BIG thing I see in many of these photographs that can be quickly and easily remedied in seconds with just a little direction from the photographer. Hit the PLAY button below to see what I’m talking about. Enjoy the show.
Hey gang, that’s it for me today. Off to Woodland Hills we go – just a quick hop, skip, and a jump across town. I’ll plan to see everyone tomorrow for one more episode of The One That Got Away. It is such a beautiful photograph, BUT….
See ya’ then, -David
