Creating evocative, idea-driven portraits doesn’t require fancy photography equipment, a studio, or even a unique location. Join Sony Artisan Brooke Shaden to learn how you can create dynamic and poignant portraits with little to no budget. She’ll even show you how to create a great portrait in a garage with a window and a LED light.

In this session, you’ll explore how to:

  • Use poses that evoke emotion
  • Transform a boring location into a sleek, minimalist backdrop with Photoshop
  • Manipulate light in Photoshop to create a high-end look
  • Composite photos together to create one image with a greater impact
