An Introduction to Film Photography
Limited Capacity filling up

Want to learn all about film photography? In Kim's outdoor shooting demonstration at Piedmont Park, you will dive into all things film! You will learn about 35mm vs. medium format cameras, film types and characteristics, and how to rate and meter film for the correct exposure (and how it differs from digital). Kim will photograph a model family and demonstrate her tips and tricks while giving students a chance to shoot alongside her. She will answer the most important question - how to photograph a family when you don't have an LCD screen to see you're nailing the shots. Kim will take things one step further and go over the importance of choosing a creative partner, the film lab, to get the final look you want to achieve. Finally, she will give you a solid game plan to use moving forward to develop a strong foundation in film.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn what film gear they need for an outdoor family session
- Learn about film types and characteristics
- Learn how to accurately rate and meter their film for correct exposure
- Learn how to photograph a family on film using key poses, mental checklists, and nailing the shot without an LCD screen
- Learn how to choose a film lab, their creative partner, to get a consistent style

View from Above: Flat Lay Styling for Products

Knowing how to style and photograph scenes from above can elevate one's photography and open up opportunities for magazine work and content creation for brands. While some sets have various individuals in distinct roles (e.g., creative director, prop stylist, photographer), there are other situations where the photographer will be called upon to play all roles. Thus, having confidence in styling one's own images is key. Plus, photographers can use these types of images for their own client guides, websites, or social media pages. In this interactive session, Kimberly Murray will discuss and demonstrate the tools and techniques that make flat lay styling easier and how to use layering, color, and texture to create more dynamic images. In addition, she will discuss the importance of choosing the best backgrounds to set the scene and how to make or source them.

The In- beTWEEN Years: Preserving Authenticity With Older Children
Limited Capacity filling up

Photographing small children seems to come easily. They’re happily unaware of our presence, and usually give us moments effortlessly. But as children grow older, their awareness of the lens can make capturing authentic moments more challenging. With each passing day, children grow older, wiser, and more independent. 
During this hands-on shooting class we will delve into what intimacy with older children looks like. Through the stages of childhood and adolescence, their means of affection subtly change. While a 5 year old will unabashedly shower you with kisses, the 10 year old may reluctantly hug you, and the tween may briefly lay their head on your shoulder. Each stage can have it’s own love language and level of affection, and parents relish in whatever is handed out.
We will walk through step-by-step how to navigate sessions with older children, from pre-session questionnaires, to putting them at ease before and during shooting.
This hands-on class will reproduce an in-home setting, utilizing available light. Attendees are welcome to bring a flash as well, if time allows to cover fill flash. Lens preferences: 35mm Prime, or 24-70mm. Experience shooting in manual is preferred, but the instructor will call out settings to help assist beginners.

Learning Objectives: 

- Learn how interact, disarm, and bond with older children and their families for authentic emotions
- Learn how to utilize window light during in-home sessions: Positioning subjects in relation to window for best light and composition
- Learn how to investigate family dynamics ahead of time via questionnaires, to best understand optimal poses and family dynamics
- Learn how to control and minimize mixed light during in-home sessions

A Family Walk: Improvising & Building Your Session as you Go
Limited Capacity filling up

One of the biggest tools in the photographer's toolbox is improvisation; how to work with unpredictable personalities, varying light, unexpected moments, and unknown scenery. This walk will focus on a styled family in a park setting with a variety of backdrops/locations.This family will be casually dressed with at least three children to allow more shooting opportunities. This shootout will take a lifestyle approach but also capture traditional portraits as attendees explore and see what the walk brings them. From learning how to guide clients on styling and how to engage with children and their varying personalities, to seeing how to improvise and find perfect spots even in unexpected places, Samantha will show you what she’s learned from doing thousands of family and commercial shoots over the years — that every session is different and that makes it so much more creative and fun.
Samantha will photograph the subjects but also give attendees the opportunity to shoot by rotating within groups and also breaking up the models for more access. Lighting, backgrounds and the subjects will guide this walk as you go from lifestyle, to detail, to portrait shots that results in a robust and powerful gallery. This styled shoot will include a guide on how to give styling advice to your client, some of Samantha’s favorite prompts, as well as some post processing tips in terms of presets and approach. For this class, please bring a prime or zoom lens with a focal length between 35-85mm.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to utilize the light and scenery at hand to create beautiful portraits
- Explore styling guidance and how to utilize blankets, hats and accessories for interest
- Learn how to set the tone and flow of a session to be fun and natural while making the use of every moment
- Find out how to read your client’s and especially the children’s moods and respond to bring out their best in the session

The In- beTWEEN Years: Preserving Authenticity With Older Children
Limited Capacity full

Photographing small children seems to come easily. They’re happily unaware of our presence, and usually give us moments effortlessly. But as children grow older, their awareness of the lens can make capturing authentic moments more challenging. With each passing day, children grow older, wiser, and more independent. 
During this hands-on shooting class we will delve into what intimacy with older children looks like. Through the stages of childhood and adolescence, their means of affection subtly change. While a 5 year old will unabashedly shower you with kisses, the 10 year old may reluctantly hug you, and the tween may briefly lay their head on your shoulder. Each stage can have it’s own love language and level of affection, and parents relish in whatever is handed out.
We will walk through step-by-step how to navigate sessions with older children, from pre-session questionnaires, to putting them at ease before and during shooting.
This hands-on class will reproduce an in-home setting, utilizing available light. Attendees are welcome to bring a flash as well, if time allows to cover fill flash. Lens preferences: 35mm Prime, or 24-70mm. Experience shooting in manual is preferred, but the instructor will call out settings to help assist beginners.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how interact, disarm, and bond with older children and their families for authentic emotions
- Learn how to utilize window light during in-home sessions: Positioning subjects in relation to window for best light and composition
- Learn how to investigate family dynamics ahead of time via questionnaires, to best understand optimal poses and family dynamics
- Learn how to control and minimize mixed light during in-home sessions

View from Above: Flat Lay Styling for Products

Knowing how to style and photograph scenes from above can elevate one's photography and open up opportunities for magazine work and content creation for brands. While some sets have various individuals in distinct roles (e.g., creative director, prop stylist, photographer), there are other situations where the photographer will be called upon to play all roles. Thus, having confidence in styling one's own images is key. Plus, photographers can use these types of images for their own client guides, websites, or social media pages. In this interactive session, Kimberly Murray will discuss and demonstrate the tools and techniques that make flat lay styling easier and how to use layering, color, and texture to create more dynamic images. In addition, she will discuss the importance of choosing the best backgrounds to set the scene and how to make or source them.

10 cm: A Complete Birth Photography Course
Limited Capacity seats available

Birth photography is becoming one of the fastest growing genres in photography. Preserving the ability to be welcomed in the birth space has never been more crucial. However, if birth photographers do not know how to handle themselves professionally in a medical setting, as well as on social media, their ability to tell these stories as authentically as they are right now could be compromised. In this class, Neely will teach you how to build relationships not only with your clients, but with the hospital staff as well, from the nurses, to the doctors and midwives. You will also learn how to overcome harsh light, and utilize flash effectively and professionally. Given the intimate nature of birth photography, understanding your client's level of comfort is crucial when composing and curating what images are shared publicly. The class will cover what to and not to shoot, what to do in emergencies, and where to stand in the OR. The course will also cover how to find your voice as a birth photographer.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to dig deep into relationship building
- Learn how to make a name for yourself and gain the trust of medical professionals in the birth community
- Learn about consent in depth from the client, to the staff (what the shoot, when to shoot, and what to share)
- Learn the specifics of where to stand, how to handle oneself in the birthing room
- Learn how to utilize flash, as well as, ideal settings to overcome harsh light and low light, often with quick movements

Flip the Switch: Changing Your Lighting Scenario to Fit Your Flat Lay Needs

Join Kimberly Murray as she discusses alternatives to natural light, specifically strobes, speedlights, and LEDs, and how to use them in overhead photography. In addition, she will demonstrate the placement of the light source, and how modifiers can be used to create different moods. This session will take place indoors.
