Creating a Romantic Portrait on Location with Bobbi Lane

Hosted by Joe Brady

Spend an hour with guest photographer Bobbi Lane as she demonstrates the techniques used to create a conceptual image on location - a "romantic portrait", perhaps as a gift from the bride to the groom.  We’ll have Bobbi in the studio where she can explain in detail the concept, the process, the tools and the final results to creating a beautiful image.

Using available light with fill flash, Bobbi will take us step-by-step through an outdoor shoot we recorded using simple off-camera flash techniques.

Learn how Bobbi uses fill flash to open shadows and create a more pleasing light and skin tone. While on-camera flash can provide fill, the light sources are still small and often don’t provide a soft and effective illumination. Bobbi will take the flash off camera, using the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 to create a more pleasing light. This will be time well spent as we see a behind the scenes look at the process and techniques she uses to create her beautiful portraits.
