A BRAND NEW COURSE AT PPSOP!
As photographers, amateur and professional alike, we have all ventured down many a road, both literally and figuratively, and at one time or another, made the magical discovery of a hidden treasure and felt that intensely satisfying feeling of having just recorded a truly compelling image! These are the discoveries that certainly fuel our passion for image making.
As you move yet towards other hidden treasure's that lie in wait along life's many paths, roads, avenues, and streets, I want to strongly recommend that you also consider traveling down at least one lane and NOT just any lane I might add. The lane I am suggesting is truly an extra-ordinary LANE; a LANE that will in fact, lead you towards even richer roads, paths, avenues and streets!
The Lane I am speaking of is Bobbi Lane, one of America's greatest teachers on the subject of photographing people! Bobbi Lane is truly a gifted photographic artist and no one even comes close to teaching the art of Photographing People-Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere than Bobbi does with Portraits Unplugged! What amazes me most about Bobbi Lane is that she creates her stunning and often times mesmerizing people images WITHOUT benefit of any electronic lighting equipment. The entire class that she will be teaching here at PPSOP is based on nothing more than using available light and reflectors. (In this day of Global Warming, it can easily be argued that this is a "Green Photography Course" since no electricity will ever be used by you as you record what I know will be some truly electrifying images!)
Bobbi Lane is truly a Master of capturing available light and making the light that is available work towards flattering her subjects to the highest of levels. She is also a consummate professional in dealing with the often-complex nature of what some describe as the most difficult subjects of all, 'people'.
People photography, perhaps more than any other subject, is what all of us wish we could excel at but... Whether you wish to create compelling images of just friends or family or wish to gain the knowledge and courage to approach and shoot compelling images of people you hardly know, your wish can now be granted thanks to the genius of Bobbi Lane! PPSOP feels incredibly honored and lucky to offer a class taught by Bobbi who was recently handed the award for education on the 25th anniversary of the APA!
Bobbi Lane's course, Portraits Unplugged begins on Friday January 11th. Click here to learn more and to get to the sign-up page.
One final thought!
"Can our turkey jump higher than the Chicago skyline?"
"You bet it can! The Chicago skyline can't jump at all!"
