WORKSHOP SYNOPSIS

April 3rd-4th Bangalore | April 6th-7th Mumbai | Contact +91-9620830837


2 Days of Extensive Newborn and Maternity Photography WORKSHOP

Kelly Brown workshops are focused on how to safely pose, soothe, calm, and keep newborn subjects happy and sleepy.  In addition to discussing how to set up a newborn session using both Studio and Natural light, we will dive into lenses, equipment, exposure, and white balance so that you know how to get the perfect SOOC image.  We will also work through step-by-step post-processing for clean edits with that signature newborn creamy skin.

In this workshop, we will also be exploring both maternity photography and sessions with older sitting babies.  Kelly will demonstrate how to get beautiful variety-filled galleries for your clients, bridging the gap towards higher sales and long-term success.

One factor that sets Kelly Brown’s workshops apart is the emphasis on business.  In this increasingly competitive industry, knowing how to find your market and run a legitimate and profitable business is the most important recipe for success.  A fair portion of the workshop is dedicated to additional topics such as pricing, marketing, presentation, client relations, and other business matters.

Also included will be a flat 25% off on all her video tutorials on newbornposing.com.

Course Content

So once you sign up for this workshop you will receive a mail containing all the pre-workshop requisites. In case, you failed to do your homework, you have to do 100 push-ups during the workshop.

The first day will be focused on newborn setup, newborn posing, and business.  Using newborn models, Kelly will guide you through a typical newborn session, showing her pose to pose transitions, angles, soothing methods, etc.  You will be able to photograph some setups for your own portfolio, with kelly there next to you, guiding you with your own angles to get that perfect SOOC shot. Kelly strongly believes in a hands-on approach to her teaching, so Kelly will be right there to help and answer any questions you might have.
 
We will also have a thorough business discussion, where Kelly will be an open book.  Kelly will go through her pricing, branding, methods for marketing, website, and everything in between. You will be welcome to raise your own questions at any time – all questions are welcomed.
