Portraits Unplugged

Portraits Unplugged is all about natural light, nothing technical or mechanical with reflectors and diffusers as our only tools. Bobbi teaches you how to find and work with natural light to make flattering and dynamic portraits of any subject.  The beauty of available light is its ability to describe your subject from powerful and strong to soft and creamy. We work on capturing the essence of the people by the use of posing, expressions, tonality, composition, color, backgrounds and props. Bobbi shows you how to work with all kinds of light: hard, soft, bounced, window, “garage door”, reflected, diffused, etc.
