MASTERING LOW LIGHT - CINEMATIC PORTRAITURE - SENSUAL PORTRAITURE
If you’ve always wanted to learn to create images that evoke emotion and tell a story, assisted by beautiful lighting and subject direction, now is your last chance to experience KD’s final workshop in Thailand. So what’s it all about? Let’s paint the picture….
What would it be like to capture the intimacy of two people in love? How could this be done without interference and manipulation of the moment? A couple’s private moments are rarely seen, not captured. But if you were to capture it, how would you go about doing it with honesty and in good taste? The answers to these questions will be explored during KD’s final workshop in Thailand.
Imagine this - you have been asked by a loving couple to shoot their intimate moments in their home. You are arrive during the final hours of light and shoot until dusk. During this time you navigate your camera into new territory and explore the beauty of light, shadow and emotion, creating the ultimate mood and tone that results in a picture story that is sincere and special.
This is the story we will be creating on the day with our guest models. The goal is to use our imagination as a group to collectively put together different scenarios that would mimic scenes in either real life or a romantic movie, that can be translated into a beautiful picture story. The techniques you will learn can also be utilised in your daily photography and aimed at providing you with the tools to use your Leica to create more natural and powerful pictures during your daily adventures.
We will be utilising mostly natural light but technically, when required, we will also look into using artificial light (LED) to mimic natural light and shadow to create more artistic and striking portraits with the mood and tone we are accustomed to seeing in the cinema. Using two models you will have the opportunity to shoot them individually as well as together.
