David Anthony Williams
The greatest challenge to us is to remain creative. We don’t always have the room, the props, or the budget necessary to bring these ideas to life. We are also challenged by the flatness of the backgrounds we shoot against. David will demonstrate a few techniques to change that whilst keeping in mind versatility and variety. Making elegant family groups efficiently and quickly will not only endear you to parents â€“ but make them strong, extremely effective advocates for your business. It will also impress future potential clients, who have witnessed the brush-off approach at other weddings from photographers who don’t care enough. Learn simple, effective prompts to bring control to a sometimes chaotic event. Become familiar with the process of quickly ascertaining who will be placed where and why. Subjects covered include: how to use simple placements of chairs to aid the process, how to light the group, and aiming for ‘elegant yet relaxed’. David will demonstrate using a number of volunteers from the audience how to quickly assemble a group with style
