Feb 20: Portraits – What You Need to Get Started

Wyanne Chase

If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at portrait photography but thought the equipment was too complex and expensive – this evening is for you. Wyanne is a graphic designer and artist who has incorporated her own portrait photography into her work. She will talk about essential equipment, and what kind of cost you can expect.

There will also be an opportunity to practice portrait photography later in the evening so bring your cameras as well as flashes, tripods, reflectors and any other equipment you’d like to try. We’ll work with each other as models and with a little bit of luck will have some outside models there as well. Come and let’s have some fun!

KPAC member, Valerie Rampone was one of them. She had her camera with her and took full photographic advantage of being among the fabulous feminine faces. Tonight she will share some of the images in which she captured the essence of people, place and purpose and will talk about finding backgrounds and light as events are unfolding about you if you happen to be the photographer.
