PPE 2016 Photo Walk With Ira Block: Adding Light To Your Environmental Portrait

Environmental portraits are a powerful way to tell a story. Join Ira Block, Sony Artisan of Imagery and National Geographic photographer, as he teaches you how to interact with your subjects in order to make them feel comfortable, relaxed and expressive. He will also discuss how to find locations that compliment and define your subjects. Your images will be stronger when you control the light by adding reflectors, strobes, LEDs, candles or even flashlights. During this photo walk we will experiment with some of these techniques to enhance our images. We will have models and lighting equipment available for all of our participants.
