Children in Motion: Capturing the Joy of Childhood with Movement (Kellie Bieser) FULL

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full

Learn how to use motion to create portraits full of joy and childhood wonder! Watch Kellie Bieser as she works with kids and encourages them to move, wiggle, twirl, and jump to create images that you and your clients love.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn proper camera settings to effectively capture motion, whether it be freezing motion or embracing blur.
2. Learn to utilize motion to really capture the personalities of young subjects and the joy of childhood.
3. Leave this program with a mental toolkit of different prompts to get kids of different ages, stages, and genders to move in a way that translates effectively through images.

Mission San Jose:
This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at Mission San Jose (just a short 15 minute bus ride from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1720, and known as the "Queen of the Missions," San Jose is the showpiece of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and tells the early story of San Antonio and European expansion in the New World.

The grounds of Mission San Jose is a huge area (over six acres inside the gates) that gives you ample room to photograph kids and families at play. The walls provide great framing opportunities, with many windows and doors all around the perimeter. There are also several stone walls (without doors and windows) if you are looking for plain stone backdrops. You’ll also find some interesting arches next to the church and at the entrance - they, along with the repeating doors and windows, give you the opportunity to use repeating elements in your composition. There are a few big trees throughout, but in many areas you’ll see the wide open sky. You’ll be able to use the walls to help you stay in the shade (if that’s what you are after) or partially block the sun. Because the Mission is massive and is outside of the city, you’ll find plenty of space for shooting outside of the walls as well. The outdoor grounds of Mission San Jose have been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors. There will be a wedding rehearsal going on inside the Mission San Jose Church, so we ask that you remain on the expansive outdoor grounds rather than venturing inside the church.
