Sports Portrait Class Nov 8th @ JD Lab

October 7th, 2014

ppa-logoJD will host Sabina Cavalli for the PPA Merit Class titled “Stunning Sports Portaits” on Saturday November 8th from 9am to 5pm in the lab training room (directions).

In this day-long workshop Sabina Cavalli teaches you how to create a “sportrait,” a sports portrait so incredible that clients will do a double-take! This course is your opportunity to stop being average and go for the amazing!

You’ll learn how to set up the perfect lighting and create compositions that truly highlight your clients. Discover the various poses that work best, and how to photograph each sport differently. From lighting ratios to backgrounds, editing and everything in between, you’ll discover how to develop your signature style that will stand out from the rest!

After this class, you won’t have to flip through a magazine to see eye-popping “sportraiture.” It will be right in front of you – and your clients!

Note: This workshop focuses in developing a signature studio lighting method and therefore requires at least a basic working knowledge of studio strobes and light metering devices.

Title: Stunning Sports Portraits

Date: Saturday, November 8th from 9am to 5pm.

PPA Members: will earn a PPA Merit for attending this class.

Items to Bring: note-taking materials, camera, radio triggers for studio lights. Lunch will be provided.

Price: $89 for PPM or PPA members, $99 for non-members.
