An compact look into the unique and highly successful style of a top portrait photographer. Through intense focus, interaction, and willingness to experiment, she can get in ten minutes what others could not get in an hour. A look at her website shows that her style produces photos with great action and life that seem to jump off the page, in contrast to the static and posed look that is so common. For a more complete look at how she works, and to stretch yourself, also take a look at her CreativeLive course, Portraits Under Pressure. Anyone that is trusted and paid to work with top celebrities–and can produce excellent portraits when given only ten minutes and a closet–has a lot to teach us.
This workshop was very necessary to me. I often work on a short time plans. Often I hang and I feel confused and unprepared. Messy place is always a surprise that pulls me down. Totally unnecessary. The workshop inspired me to broaden their knowledge about working with artificial light. And, of course, to buy a few portable backdrops to more interesting portraits.
