- The park was so much fun today,…I got some great images of the kids,…and it was fun interacting with them…and getting to know them.…I hope that you learned a few techniques…for shooting them in broad daylight in the sun.…I hope the backlighting and the positioning…the kids where they need to be really helped…so that you can go out and capture…some fantastic images on the fly…in a short amount of time,…so your kids can really enjoy it,…and you'll have memories that will last a lifetime.…I'm excited to see what you do.…
In this course, we join photographer Erika Thornes in a sun-dappled park for a look at the techniques she employs to shoot her beautiful, natural-light portraits. Watch as Erika engages with a little girl and adjusts her shooting approach based on what the child is doing. Erika also demonstrates tricks for dealing with high-energy kids. The course concludes with a review of the day's shoot and some post-processing tips.
