Photography 101 Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

So you just bought a new camera, but the pictures still do not look quite as professional as you had hoped. Professional photographers James Rippe and Paul Cory will provide some hands on suggestions to help your pictures look more like art, rather than something snapped on your smartphone. Allegriana and Angela Pritchett will serve as Models and SFX Artist Jen McCollom will offer suggestions on make-up for pictures.

There will be a discussion of posing for cosplayers.

Participants should plan to show up within 10 minutes of the scheduled start time. When we finish with the introductory discussion, the workshop will be mobile to give participants a chance to work in real-con conditions.
