Introduction to Birth Photography (Paige Wilks)
Limited Capacity seats available

Join Paige Wilks in a discussion on all aspects of birth photography including contracts, lighting, equipment choice, client communications, and what to expect during labor. In this course you will review the differences between hospital births and home births, your role as a birth attendant and how to create powerful storytelling images in any birth environment. At the completion of this program, you will have a better understanding of what to expect at a birth as well as the knowledge to fully document any birth, no matter what shooting challenges you may have to overcome.
Please note that due to the subject matter, this program will differ from all other Boutique Sessions in that it will not be an interactive shooting demo. It will be set up as a classroom style lecture and discussion.


Learning Objectives:
1. Discuss common questions such as contracts, when to start coverage, communication with the mother prior to labor, and the differences between home and hospital births.
2. Learn how to handle challenging lighting situations, creative ways to use ambient light, as well as when it is necessary/acceptable to use flash and the basics of doing so.
3. Understand camera and lens choice and how to handle focusing issues in low light situations.
4. Discuss the role of the photographer at the birth, remaining invisible and supportive.
5. Learn how to handle a birth emergency or drastic change in the birth plan, as well as how to document c-section births when you are not allowed in the OR.

Maternity Posing in Outdoor Lighting (Alli Peck)
Limited Capacity seats available

Canon is the host of this Golden Hour Shooting Experience program.  
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/home. Alli
uses a Canon Mark III.


Leah Maria Couture is styling and providing the maternity gowns worn by the models in this program:

http://www.leahmariacouture.com

Join Alli Peck in this Golden Hour Shooting Experience to learn how to pose maternity models and choose lighting to create flattering images. Alli will share her ideal camera settings for outdoor shooting and her tried and true tricks for creating beautiful backlit maternity portraits.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to use backlight to flatter your maternity client.
2. Learn which camera settings to use for outdoor shooting.
3. Learn how to pose your maternity client.

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.

Maternity Photography: Finding the Light to Make her Glow (Nicole Everson)
Limited Capacity seats available

Nicole is sponsored by Color Inc
http://www.colorincprolab.com/


Canon is the host of this Golden Hour Shooting Experience program.  
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/home.
Nicole uses a Canon Mark II and Canon Mark III, and Canon lenses including: 24-70 2.8, 50 1.2, 85 1.4, 70-200 2.8, 135, 100 macro.

Leah Maria Couture will be styling and provding the maternity gowns worn by the models in this program:

http://www.leahmariacouture.com

Join Nicole Everson for a maternity session in the golden hour. Learn about Nicole's approach to maternity photography using styled pregnant models. Nicole will share how she took the one part of her business that was making the smallest profit and pushed herself to make it a big money maker by making every mother a goddess.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to pose and direct a pregnant woman.
2. Understand how to make your client feel comfortable and beautiful.
3. Understand how to bring out emotion in your images.

The Alamo:
This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at the Alamo (just a short walk from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1724 as Mission San Antonio de Valero – the first mission in San Antonio – the Alamo is known as the "Shrine of Texas Liberty" and is the number one tourist destination in Texas. 

The Alamo has two distinct features— the buildings/walls and the lush greenery. Access to the buildings and walls is fairly easy from outside the Alamo itself or at several points inside the gates. The greenery provides full or partial coverage, allowing you to play with the amount of natural light as well as the direction. Even though you’ll be able to see other photographers due to the layout of the Alamo, you’ll find that creative use of the greenery can give a very private, or “Secret Garden,” feel to your images. There are several benches at a number of places within the walls. If you head outside the gates, you’ll find a bigger common area and more bright, unobstructed sunlight. The Alamo has been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors if you plan to remain inside the gates near the Alamo gardens.
