A photographer's light is our language; we tell our stories with light. So understanding and controlling that light is very important. However, as soon as we master our light... What’s the next step?  This is where most photo shoots go wrong. In this jam-packed and fun two-hour seminar, Fashion/Celebrity photographer Frank Doorhof guides you through many tips that will make your photo shoot go from OK to WOW without breaking the bank. Doorhof talks about using light more creatively, using props, but most of all, how to style your sessions and coach the models to get that one expression and tell that story that will make your shots stand out. Doorhof has a wide area of expertise, ranging from model to street/travel photography, and he specializes in teaching. He  is a KelbyOne instructor, X-rite colorati, Adobe Influencer, DxO image master and has recently been added to the top 100 of most social-media-influential photographers in the world. His book,  “Mastering the Model Shoot,”  has reached bestseller status and is, according to many, one of the best books on the subject. This seminar was based, in part, on that book so if you’re into model/people photography, you can’t afford to miss this video. About Frank Doorhof Both photography and teaching have been in Doorhof’s blood from a very young age. He has released a book called "A Guide to Model Photography,” and nine instructional DVDs, which are sold worldwide. In the studio in Emmeloord, Netherlands, Doorhof teaches workshops on a weekly basis, but he also teaches workshops in other countries, sometimes for manufacturers but also for groups of photographers. In 2010, he was the first European photographer to join Kelby training, a group of the world's best instructors in both photography and retouching. Doorhof shoots mainly with medium format digital cameras—at this moment, a Leaf digital back connected to a Mamiya RZ67ProII, for studio work, and a Phase One DF camera with Leaf back for location work. For sports and other areas of photography that are difficult to shoot with medium format, he uses canon DSLRs. Although Doorhof loves digital photography, he rediscovered analog photography when he switched to medium format, and is shooting film with the RZ67ProII. The scans from the 6 × 7 negatives/slides have a certain look you can’t get with digital cameras, and medium format system film and the digital format are easily combined.

Lighting is easily the most important aspect of photography. You could even go as far as saying that lighting is photography: It is even in the word itself: "photography" is Greek for "light drawing," or "drawing with light." Without light, you cannot take photos. It is perfectly possible to take amazing photographs with a very simple camera—as long as the lighting is good. The opposite holds, as well: If you are taking photos in a situation where the lighting is truly appalling, having the fanciest, most expensive camera in the world isn’t going to help you capture the photographs you want. Join Bob Davis as he explores light and the combination of available light and Speedlites. Through this discovery of light you will see the power and possibilities of using all the light available to you, creating quality anywhere, anytime.

Landscape photography entails the capture of light, color, shape, texture, and emotion to convey your opinion about the natural world. While technical proficiency is important, it is the meaning and vision that you impart to an image that often makes the difference between success and failure. Each of us has a unique and personal vision to express, and Robert Rodriguez Jr believes this is the key to developing—and significantly improving—your photography. In this presentation, Rodriguez discusses how these ideas form the basis of his landscape photography, and how the "art and craft" combine to achieve what is most important, a meaningful image. He talks about not only the basic hows of landscape photography, but more importantly, the whys that can help you begin to "make" meaningful images instead of just hoping for good results. Rodriguez uses real-world examples and his own experiences as a landscape photographer throughout the lecture, and there is a Q+A period as well.
