Empowerment on Film: Beauty Session in the Golden Hour (Joyce Kang)
Limited Capacity seats available

Join Joyce Kang for this hands-on beauty session experience designed to demonstrate the ease of creating stunning imagery combining film and natural light. During this Golden Hour Shooting Experience, you will have the opportunity to photograph female models and learn natural-looking posing tips as well as how to flatter women using the best camera angle, the attributes of light, and the characteristics of film.

Learning Objectives:
1. Discuss why boudoir photography looks great on film.
2. Learn how to meter for each film stock and how to create the look you want to achieve.
3. Learn how to meter for tricky light situations.
4. Observe how to relax the client to create most natural imagery.

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.
