Challenge #6: Shadow Play

Class Description

Feeling stuck and uninspired behind the lens? Stop scrambling for ideas on your next portrait.

Enter the Creative Photo Challenge

We teamed up with master portrait photographer, Lindsay Adler, for a bi-monthly series of FREE photography challenges designed to push you well beyond your comfort zone. Named one of the top 10 best fashion photographers in the world, Lindsay knows how vital it is to grow and explore to thrive as a photographer.

To spark your creativity, try a new (totally doable) challenge every other week to help you discover and harness new techniques. We’ll send you an email with a video (about five minutes long) outlining simple steps and ideas for a unique portrait. Take a moment to think about your point of view and deliver something outside of your norm.
