Lydia Baikalova – 5 ways to look your best in every photo
Unless you live in a cave, having to take, be in, choose and use photos of yourself and others has become a necessity of the modern world somewhere along the lines of having breakfast every morning. Yet, so many people still feel uncomfortable with a camera pointed at them, be it one attached or not attached to a cellphone. Understanding the psychology and technology behind what makes a photo pop takes the guesswork out of the process.
Lydia has extensive experience on both sides of the camera spending over 5 years as a professional photographer and a head of a photography business as well as over 15 years in print modeling and acting. In her talk she will be sharing the secrets to building a relationship with the camera. Her practical advice on aligning your desired message with the result will help your photos clearly communicate to your audience. She will also touch on choosing the right device for the occasion (while DSLRs and new generation mirrorless cameras are great, much can be accomplished with simply a cell phone) and will go over the basics of composition and lighting.
This workshop is recommended for those looking to improve their travel and instagram photos, dating profiles, learn to be more photogenic and be better photographers to their friends. It may also be useful for photographers who struggle with directing people and getting genuine emotion in the shots.
