NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP – Limited to 2 participants! (Lisbon – Portugal – Europe)
This workshop is open to professional and amateur photographers who want to broaden their knowledge and learn more about the art of capturing newborns up to 15 days of age!
Come learn how I conduct my newborn sessions from beginning to end, using natural light and studio lights. We will discuss the preparation of the sessions and the various scenarios, how I work with my camera, and how I prepare parents and deal with them before and during the sessions. You will have the opportunity to see my entire workflow, to see my methods to relax babies and learn the various poses, handling, and safety when capturing newborns.
This workshop will include two newborn sessions during the duration of two days, with post-production (editing and image processing). The sessions will be directed / supervised by me – Isabel Monte – and the participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the workshop, to gain practical experience with the newborn (take photographs and work poses) on the second day. The pictures taken by the participants may be used later in own portfolio.
Because of my educational and experience background in marketing, I will give special attention to the subject, and show you my communication strategies, in order to help you build a successfully business in the future.
