“How to Shoot a Model with Small Flash”

Join us in this 2-hour free, live, online interactive show.

May 1st, 2019 at 3PM CEST / 5am PST / 8am EST

This is a live, interactive, free, online broadcast from our studio in Emmeloord.

 

As a commercial photographer, you’ll never know who will be in front of your lens. He or she can be tall or short, red or blond. You have to be prepared and know how light works.

In this episode Frank will meet one of the finalists of Miss Beauty of Flevoland (our region). The winner will compete with our Dutch provinces to become Miss Beauty of The Netherlands. Frank has never worked with this Miss.

 But he will create at least 2 completely different setups with Small Flash! And shows you how to get the most out of 1 setup, so your (buying) client has a lot to choose from. Coaching is incredibly important; Frank shows you how he coaches and also gives a lot of other business tips the maximize your shoot.

Because Frank is shooting tethered, he, the model and you can see the pictures immediately! So it is a challenge to get that first shot right

And of course, he will retouch some images too. He’ll show you his workflow from selecting and retouching till backup and sharing.

And the best thing is you can talk to Frank & the crew LIVE in the chat on YouTube or Facebook.

So, are you new in model photography or don’t know how to start? Don’t miss this episode and next time, you’ll know what to do to!

Send in your portrait pictures and Frank will critique them. Mail them to info@frankdoorhof.com

Special thanks to our sponsors: BenQ Photographic Monitors & Rogue Photographic Design.
