When photographing, your emotional state will have one the of the largest impacts on the overall tone of the images you create. In order to truly understand how to create emotional images that speak to you, you have to know what it is that moves you from the inside. This is something that is not easy to answer, likely ever evolving, and may take time to understand. This is more about learning who you are and becoming self aware than it is being an artist.
This course is meant to guide you in the direction of creating intimately, captivating images between a mother and child. Although we will specifically focus on this bond throughout the course material, you will be able to use these tools to expand on other relationships that you may photograph. By the end, you will understand the fundamentals of body language that create emotion, how to ignite emotion in your subjects, choose locations that will suit the mood for your images, process your images to deepen the intimacy and bring attention with your ability to capture emotion into your business. Create what makes you fall in love with being a photographer all over again.
