Register to join Jerome Hamilton in the Model’s room! This presentation and workshop room will be open from 8am until 12noon in this professional hub. Beginning first thing in the morning at 8am on Thursday, Jerome will give a 30-minute presentation on lighting, lighting modifiers and lighting direction.
Then, on the Friday, Jerome will again be doing a short presentation, but this time on posing models for better composition. Directly after each presentation, you will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with all the models for that day. We will work with a variety of backgrounds, and models in different attire, already prepared to make your portfolio and competition images look and feel stronger. Jerome will be available and will have some extra Photo Assistants present and ready to help with camera settings and posing the models when needed. Remember to bring your cameras, your media cards, and make sure you have an active hot shoe on your camera to fire the studio strobe lighting.
