Environmental Portraits: Cake Designer

Environmental portraits are a highly sought after, yet challenging genre of photography that require you, the photographer, to think on your feet. Often, you don’t really know who you’ll be photographing, what the location looks like or what the lighting will be, and you have to overcome each of these challenges as you encounter them.

In this series of videos Karl show you how to overcome difficult situations like this as he photographs in a variety of different locations, both indoor and outdoor. These classes will equip you with knowledge and skills you need to shoot with confidence and deliver high-quality images that your clients will be happy with.

In this class Karl faced the challenge of creating a bright, fresh looking image in a small, underground basement. Using a simple lighting setup, you’ll see how he uses studio lighting techniques to create the feeling of bright sunlight and compositional tricks to frame this shot of a cake designer.

NOTE: These classes are scheduled for release over the next few months.
