This is exciting way have a set now we've been shooting on white background we shot on location yesterday doing street in studio now we've made us set and we're putting people in an environment so we got to do the acting a little bit of modeling and it's a bit crazy so I'm calling my photographer's over here to take control of the set and guide them so we have a new hero in this siri's the hero is karaoke e the story is chary ok, so we have a storyboard this time we have visuals feuded brain the models around showing the visuals to guide them through the injury they want so you can use this as you shoot to make sure as you're shooting and keep referring to your storyboard guide the energy and the action have you guys if you don't carry okay before one only one of four are you kidding me? Okay, all right, all right, now now we're talking now it talking creative I've kariuki oh, come on, I won't be the next time I want to be there, but I can't sing but it's so much fun as you know it's s...

o much fun I want to feel that fund that energy in here, but if they're doing a curiosity story and the theme is carrie okey and they're wearing apart like jeans or whatever we have sell those genes you're selling lee a lifestyle youth fun energy so that's why we'll see here having fun showing energy having a great time because then you want like oh wow I won't be in those boots I mean those shoes I would be in that those pants because they've been good time lookingood having fun so that's what this is all about someone have you direct each of them in places anywhere you want you now have a sit and on this set in place of any way you want here we work with all four models now and we might add even a few more people you never know but uh you are in charge you are the director mowbray ma'am I was out when they become ready and see what it feels like before you do that you guys should feel what it's like to be the models don't bring all four of you on the set to act as the models doing kerry okay let's go you didn't know what it feels like to be in their place but so you know right well we'll see you will see have you guys get it about so who's the carrier before david yeah you've never done kariuki comey so shocked when I wass kids all that counts is that counts so you guys were having a ball you having a good time and when somebody seen a but it's not at the same time people having a good time they're lounging some people are singing it b one two people remember the storyboards so right now I should feel what? Like what it feels like to be the models when you could be challenging on the couch the other one's sitting on maybe the back of the chair go to a european singing so let's do that situation since you guys about you guys over the mikes can we on the right? Absolutely come take a look because what you would do is bring the models here and show him the storyboard so get an idea feeling for the edgy want fun and look at this space there's nothing in between here they are close here, it's one person there's this energy here is the whole group singing and having a great time here's one person again here the playing around so like me anything you want but I want to feel this energy so don't let them fake it don't let them fake it I want to know this is really like they're in a real karaoke bar having a great time used to be there with cameron kitchen moment but it looks amazing that's what you feel like so you're doing a shot the whole group doing karaoke e it could be an ad it could be a cabin client campaign it could be gap jeans you mean anything but right now I would get experience in working for groups so you can get those types of jobs and build one things so when they come out bring them over here should the visuals and then the second stage and put him out there all right right now this practice being what what it feels like to be a model on the set take a ticket that's cool that's cool I like that magnus said on the day that you want that angie, you having a great time you are best friends and you all you all work these crazy schedules and could never see each other and you're fine going to get it for surprise birthday party and having a karaoke party it's just feel like that gives each other a long time having a great time together finally letting loose on steam we have stressful jobs and now it's friday night you're always together for the first time in six months I want to feel that let's go so I want to hear it what do you want to hear? All right, I guess we're the ones pertaining to think so you wait but also you don't carry ok you're not looking at me because I'm not here we're interacting with each other you're interacting there's usually a screen for marjorie you're reading off this way and that word is I mean that's what I want but even says you guys are doing that it looks like you're faking, having fun, very much shot of us taking it I want to show you guys faking it and then it shouldn't really doing it and show you the difference. Okay, I guess we're doing the cake. Yeah, absolutely, absolutely put this through the fake version now they don't want us to do really saying what you want you want tio anything here you have your way, it's just you see, how do you feel when you're faking it? How do you feel you're really doing? Do it e o seven exactly forget about me camera have a great time so as you're shooting them, have a great time and you the photographer of the director are aware of what they have, one that you're getting stuff for your client, but make them have a great time and capture that moment. They just happen to be wearing great clothes, but you wouldn't have a great time and you are record that moment. So you had the right music they picked out you have your set, we have your lights is good to go, all you have to do is pull out the energy, that's all it's a lot, pull out the energy and make them have a great time and wants to go first e o

This was more of a collaborative course with Matthew Jordan Smith and Yoanna House, and it is brilliant. I just finished watching this for a few hours straight. I own several Creative Live courses and this is definitely in my Top 3. Matthew's teaching style is so kind but to the point and informative. That's the kind of photographer I aim to be. He puts forth his knowledge here in a way that totally encouraged everyone involved. I loved Yoanna as well. She was very direct but friendly as well. I loved watching her direct the budding models and her experience showed quite well. This part is for John, the guy who commented on June 2017. I completely disagree with you that there were too many questions and that other people were talking much more than Matthew, and that that was a negative. Matthew's whole point was not just to get straight to shooting but to talk a bit about interacting with people in general. This wasn't just about technical stuff; this was about forming that connection between photographer and model/subject. This was as much psychology as it was about actual shooting, and I absolutely loved that. So I 100% strongly disagree with you as this is one of Creative Live's BEST courses that I've seen thus far. Thanks a ton, Matthew and Yoanna, and thanks so much again, Creative Live (I'm a huge fan of you guys!).

So amazing !! Bought this and Lara jade Fashion Workshop and the 2 compliment each other really well. If you're interested in fashion photography these 2 courses are so inspiring. I Love the Matthews passion for the creative process, its inspiring and informative.
