The Workshop by Lacey Dippold Photography
What’s better than teeny tiny babies?!?! I for a long time I hated working with newborns because they felt so difficult to me. They are fussy little things that seemed only to have a mind for everything other than what I needed them to do. A few years ago, I decided to dive in and master this area of photography. While I am FAR from a master, I have improved greatly over the last couple of years through trial and error, marketing mistakes, lighting issues and a heart issue.
This workshop will take place in my studio with a newborn model or two. I will be showing posing techniques, lighting techniques, safety, client prep, working with assistants and without. I will also touch on macro photography with newborns.
You will need the following equipment:
- A DSLR camera that can shoot in manual. This is extremely important as we will be working with flash photography. This is not possible unless you can shoot manual. I can teach this briefly at the workshop as well, but please make sure your camera can do manual.
- Paper and pen for note taking
- A peaceful heart. I can’t stress this one enough. Those little souls you are working with can feel those vibes and will react accordingly. Take a deep breath and relax. I will discuss what I do while we are in the workshop.
I will obviously have my designer boutique company, Sew Trendy, props available for you to check out and use during the workshop.
I will have two models in studio for this and will get a boy and girl so we can try different looks and have something beautiful for your portfolio. You will get the chance to shoot each set from several different angles. I will also show you how I move between poses to get the most from each prop and pose.
I will be receiving some new items in studio for this workshop specifically from my sponsors and can’t wait to share them with you!
Now to everyone’s favorite part: cost.
The cost of your workshop will cover a light breakfast, lunch, four hours of class time, which will also include two-three hours of shooting time. I will rotate the boy and girl model between shooting students to give the best possible flow and quantity of images. The cost will be $150.
I am planning on March 23rd for the date. It will take place from 9:00 am until 1:00pm.
To reserve your time, you must pay the workshop fee in full. The workshop fee is non-refundable as I am only taking a few students for this and it will guarantee your space at the workshop.
