Portrait Tips at the Speed of Light

Colby McLemore, the award-winning Knoxville photographer, will be back to present his program on portrait photography at the December 9th meeting of the Camera Club. This fast-paced, exciting photography presentation attempts to render Colby's career experience in portrait photography down into a string of portrait tips, tricks, and techniques. Since the first time he gave this presentation, it has been a hit with beginners and advanced participants alike.

The program touches on all sorts of considerations, as many as Colby can fit into an hour or two.  Topics generally include how to interact with the subject, what to do and not to do; equipment and lens choices; focal lengths; camera settings, including aperture, shutter speed, and ISO; camera positions; compositions; posing of individuals and groups; lighting choices, as well as considerations using natural or artificial lighting.
