Carl is the author of the book, “Portraiture Unplugged” a guide to Natural Light Portraits and is one of the most sought after instructors in the country because of his “Hands-On” coaching approach. Don’t plan on just watching in his workshop class… Carl will challenge you to become a better photographer than you already are. His photographic skills are just part of what will help each student. His greatest strength is his ability to see what skills others already posses, then break things down to simple terms to help enhance those skills to a new level.
You will learn to see and use Natural “Portrait” Light and understand when to add the “F-Word”. This class goes way beyond lighting. We will pose, compose, and work with color harmony and dynamic backgrounds. You will be creating images each day with critiques to follow.
Demonstrations and discussions about too many industry skills to post here. If you are coming to Texas School just to watch… this is NOT a class for you. Bring your gear and get ready to dive right in. This class does have a pre-Texas School webinar included to get ready for a successful experience.
