An Intensive 2days Workshop of Natural Light Portrait and Fashion Photography

Dani Diamond’s images are immediately identifiable by millions across the globe, but what does it take to get your images there as well? Dani invites you to join him in not only learning how his stunning images are created but more importantly “the why” of each step of the process. When you leave this experience you will have the ability to create stunning images in a variety of situations.

Dani’s techniques in this intimate learning environment will prepare you to plunge into the world of professional photography regardless of where you currently are in your photography journey. Dani’s minimalist approach to his craft means that when you are finished learning, you will not need to go out and purchase the industries most expensive products, you will be ready to step out and create immediately with what you have.

This Workshop is offered in two packages. The first is the full two-day experiences, which includes learning Dani’s shooting methods on day one and on day two Dani goes through his famous retouching. The other package means choosing one day whether you want to focus solely on learning how to shoot or edit photos.

ABOUT THE MENTOR

Dani Diamond has become a household name.  His breathtaking portraits and signature style have taken over all forms of social media, from Facebook to Fstoppers.

Dani grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and now lives in Connecticut with his wife Etty, and works in New York City. He began his journey into photography merely as a hobby after graduating with a degree in business administration.

Dani started shooting landscapes and portraiture and found that people responded fiercely to his portraits, due to the connection Dani was able to create with his camera. Dani grew a fast following on facebook and social media. Dani’s ability to answer, comment and respond to his followers is just one more thing that makes Dani the photographer that he is.

Dani’s gear of choice is his Nikon D800 and his favorite lens the 85 1.4g. He uses the 85 to allow him to be close to his subject but also allows for nice compression and blur. The “blur” is what got Dani interested in portraits in the first place, his curiosity pushed him to find out how he could create that, too. The rest is all in the details, and as Dani delved into the world of photography, he made a new path.

Standard Workshop Schedule

On day one you will begin in the morning learning, hearing and discussing Dani’s thoughts on composing the perfect image. He goes through the different things that make up each of his images and more importantly what is going on in the mind of this creative genius. His talk is a minimal discussion of camera settings, which change from frame to frame, but instead he concentrates the thought process needed to see the light and find the shot.

After lunch on day one, it’s time to put into practice what was learned during the morning session. Participants will get outside of the classroom, and under Dani’s watchful eye, begin shooting and capturing portfolio-building images.

We reconvene on day two, with computers in hand, to start learning Dani’s now famous retouching process. You will begin this journey by watching Dani retouch one of his previous from day one. While watching, Dani will explain the thought process behind his method and take questions. Next, everyone will participate in the image ‘culling’ process. As a class, we will look over images from the shoot, discuss what you should look for in selecting images, select an image and go through the editing process, step by step, with the selected image.
