Join Bob Akers for an evening on the beach photographing with natural light and flash in beautiful Kennebunk, Maine.
Bob has been photographing on the beaches of Southern Maine for over ten years now and has created many Portraits that hang over the mantles in homes all over the country. Bob has 8 beaches to choose from with a 20 min drive 5 within 10 min in the York County area. Almost every family or High School Senior session ends up on the beach. You will be able to tap into all of his experience in this half day program.
The class will be about four hours long. Two hours at the studio and at least two hrs on the beach (including sunset). We will go over all of the Equipment used as well as the philosophy of use that goes with them.
There will be plenty of discussion of how light is used with natural sunset light and the different flash options and modifiers used for different situations and weather conditions. Some of these items will include large soft boxes, umbrellas, beauty dishes and parabolic. The flashes range from studio moonlights too high end portable flashes and speed lights.
In addition we will go over scene choices, beach choices due to time and tide, posing and a shot list for a beautiful coffee table album. Bob will answer questions about the session, products and pricing for Family Beach Portraits.
Can’t wait to see you there.
