More Than Pretty Tones: A Guide to Purposeful Imagery — Rebecca Yale Photography — Free download
A great photograph is about so much more than pretty tones. Join me in a 45 minute class where I will “reframe” your idea of what makes an image amazing! In this course I use semiotics, the study of visual language, to teach you how to “deep read” an image and use that knowledge to create stronger better images. So often I see photographers create good images, but have no idea how they made them, how to make them again, or how to make them great. In this course, I demystify that special quality that will take your image to the next level. The course goes over everything from using posing, framing, lighting and composition to create stronger images. This is not a beginners course that will teach photo 101, instead it spurs deeper thought on how to use those tools to create visual poetry with your images. I show never before seen outtakes from my own portfolio, including outtakes from two of my most acclaimed images- the winner of Belle Lumiere’s image of the year in 2016 and winner of Rangefinder Magazine’s Wedding Awards Grand Prize in 2017. I break down the thought process that goes in to making those images and all of my images! The course also includes never before seen images from a shoot I created where I purposefully pose a couple poorly- using only mistakes I see everyday in photographers portfolios- and then posed again successfully to show how the subtlest of changes makes all the difference.
The course will give you a behind the scenes look into how I use visual language like triangles and leading lines to create dynamic images that will stop a client or editor in their tracks!
Ever wonder why your wedding party portraits sometimes look incredible and sometimes fall flat? Take the guess work out of it and learn how to create images with compositional flow!
Dive into a never before seen series of images I created just for this class showing the posing mistakes I see every single day in photographers portfolios and the easy fixes to correct them! This course will teach some tips and tricks, but moves beyond them to give you a deeper level of understanding how to read imagery and create stronger photographs!
