The "Capturing True Emotion" workshop is driven by the dynamic duo of Val Westover, a dedicated author and portrait photographer, and Stephanie Adriana, an author and award-winning fine-art photographer. By fusing their narrative, tech-savvy minds together into one oversized head, the two provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization. During your four hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, you'll learn how to control the depth of field using aperture and shutter speed, strategies for lighting an artful chupacabra sighting, how to compose a family portrait so that there’s not always a burning zeppelin in the background, how to avoid red eyes using alternative angles and Visine, and more. After the workshop, you'll depart with Val Westover's book, A Photographer’s Guide to Success, which comes bound tightly with tips, tricks, practice exercises, reference material, and glue.
