2 Days of Natural light Child Photography and Post-processing Workshop

This workshop is going to be one of the best ever workshop we have ever conducted. We have amazing locations and have planned something very special for this time! This is Elena’s only workshop in India in 2019 so places are very limited!

Elena will be showcasing the entire workflow of how she creates those dreamy images. In addition to discussing how to set up a particular scene in both indoor and outdoor using natural light, we will dive into lenses, equipment, exposure, and white balance so that you know how to get the perfect magical images.  We will also work through step-by-step post-processing for clean edits with that signature Elena’s style images.
 
Sharing is caring! Share this amazing master class with your fellow Photographers.
 

MEET Elena Shumilova


Elena Shumilova is a brilliant Russian photographer whose images have captured the hearts of millions of people across the world. Elena’s work got noticed when photos of her kids and family went viral in early 2014.  In total her photos were views over 60,000,000 times (and we believe they were viewed outside her profile some 60 million more). Elena gets her inspiration for her amazing photos from the everyday lives of her two little children, Yaroslav and Vanya, and the domestic animals they live with in the gorgeous outskirts of Andreapol, Russia. In her photography, the artist evokes long-forgotten magical realism, striking the viewer with the beauty in simple and precious things like human and animal friendship, a warm embrace, or just actually living in the moment. Something about Elena’s photography struck a chord with almost everyone, photographers, mothers, father, young and old. The innocence and feeling of childhood that projected from her photos were just irresistible.

PAY BOOKING AMOUNT

The total cost of the workshop is INR ₹38,850/- per person. You can confirm your spot just by paying the booking amount of INR ₹14,850/- (rest of the amount you can pay before or during the workshop). In case if you want to make full payment the payment options will be shared upon inquiry.

First day of workshop Elena will give a presentation of her work, equipment that she uses, camera settings, and her thought process behind her amazing images and how she sets up a scene. She will give advice on posing models, clothing etc… This section of the workshop will last for approx two hours and there will be a questions and answers section at the end. 

We will break for lunch and when we return a coach will take everyone to the indoor photo shoot location first and later to the outdoor one.  Elena will setup scenes and show photographer’s how she shoots the scene. Photographers will then be split into two smaller groups or might be assigned with a serial number, and accordingly you will get your chance to shoot. There will be plenty of chances to photograph, this will be a very hands on workshop. There will be loads of different scenes setup during the course of the afternoon. This will last for approx 3.5 to 4 hours depending on weather could be longer.

At the end of the photo shoot session all photographers will be asked to choose two or three of their unedited images from the day straight out of camera and Elena will give constructive critique the next day in class. There is no pressure if somebody prefers not to do this but it will be a great opportunity to get advice from Elena herself.

Second day of workshop will last for six-seven hours and will be classroom based with a 45min lunch break. Elena will show her editing from start to finish using Photoshop all hand edited and at the end of the workshop Elena will give videos of her editing so you can play back at your leisure when you go back to your home. This way you can follow her work in class and if you are confident with Photoshop you can work as well in the classroom. If you prefer to watch and learn you can do so and watch the videos she creates in the class at your own pace again later.
