Confidence In Front Of The Lens: Mastering Self Portraits FULL
Limited Capacity full

Self-portraiture can seem like an intimidating genre to get started in. But really, just like any other genre of photography, the focus should be on storytelling, even when it’s just you in the frame. During Chanel’s shooting demonstration, you will watch as she sets up for a self-portrait session, and walks through her decision making process from beginning to end. 

Chanel will begin her demonstration with a discussion on self-portraiture, and why it’s important to participate in the practice. She will also explain how she decides on a theme and incorporates styling and props to emphasize her theme in the session. During this indoor shooting demo, Chanel will share the tools needed to get started with shooting self-portraits, helpful techniques to nail the shot, and tips to get comfortable in front of the camera. You will leave feeling confident and ready to put yourself in front of the lens.
