Shooting Fashion on Location
with Frank Doorhof
Learn how to shoot fashion in all kinds of locations! Join Frank Doorhof on his home turf in the Netherlands. Frank stresses how important scouting your locations are to the success of your shoot, so why not start by looking at the locations that are closest to you already. When you know your location you can maximize your time on each shoot because you already know what you want to do. Frank takes you from a junk yard to an old harbor turned park, and wraps up on the streets of Amsterdam. In each shoot Frank teaches you about his gear, his lighting setup, and his thought process that goes into creating each photograph. You learn about lighting, shutter speed, direction of light, metering the scene, using leading lines, and so much more! BUY COURSE
