Babies & Beaches | The Hawaiian Experience with Keri Meyers & Kansas Pitts
Join award winning photographers, Keri Meyers & Kansas Pitts for this once-in-a-lifetime experience on the beautiful island of Kauai (South Shore). Keri & Kansas have teamed up to offer you this two day workshop that will undoubtedly change your photography and business more than you can imagine. Together, Keri & Kansas will cover not just newborn portraiture, but outdoor children and family portraiture giving you a well rounded workshop and skill set to take home and boost your entire portrait business. This two-day workshop is a comprehensive and intense learning experience covering indoor newborn portraits using studio light and outdoor beach portraits with both newborn, children & families using natural light.
Keri will cover camera settings, her studio lighting set-up, white balance and how to get the perfect exposure and best image SOOC. We will show you how to master posing newborns, transitioning between poses, soothing techniques and how to work with parents. You’ll dive into post processing and learn how Keri gets those creamy skin tones and clean images. Please note there is no hands-on posing with large group traveling workshops. You will take home Keri’s Newborn Actions: Clean & Classic and No More Purple & Red Hands/Feet, a post processing video to help you create clean and classic newborn portraiture, 10+ pages of Newborn Review and a Gift Certificate to The Shop PLUS a swag bag full of goodies from our Sponsors.
Kansas will not only be assisting Keri in the studio newborn portion but will also talk about finding pleasing light during the daytime hours, working with light on the beach at the golden hour with both newborns and families, connecting with and posing families & children, bringing out the fun in family sessions, and working with unconventional lenses and angles for a unique style. Not only will you see her workflow and editing in person, you will take home an exclusive set of collaborative actions from Kansas & Michelle Kane, Sky Collection and a post processing video to help you create dynamic, eye-catching images.
All images that you take during the workshop can be used to build your online portfolio and for marketing purposes if desired.
