Nicki Callahan and a team of photographers travel far and wide across the West Coast to dispense her extensive knowledge of child and family photography during in-depth workshops. Classes of 30 students converge on their studio for Posing, Props, and Basics workshops, which combine informative lectures and hands-on snapping practice to instill such skills as choosing a location, setting up flattering lighting, and pressing the button that tells the camera’s film pixies to paint what they see. Other topics include adjusting the aperture to get an attractive background, choosing props and poses, and brainstorming interesting concepts for shots, such as the fall of the Roman Empire acted out by puppies.
Manual Mode classes combine lectures and practical lessons to teach concepts such as natural lighting, reading in-camera meter bars, and exposure. Nicki and a team of photographers also covers techniques to improve the composition of photos, such as point of view, and movement.
