New Content - Special FX Couples Portraits

updates Sep 30, 2021

We're excited to announce a new Premium workshop: Special FX Couples Portraits! If you're already a Premium Member, you can access the course here. If you're not a Premium Member, join our community here!

The Special FX course is an advanced workshop that offers condensed shoot-to-post recipes for what we call "signature" engagement and wedding portraits. While each tutorial features a couple, you can easily adapt these techniques to solo portraits as well.

This workshop is organized from Basic to Advanced techniques, however, each technique is a standalone tutorial. This means you can go in order, or skip around and choose the styles and techniques that you find most compelling. 

We've already published the first three videos and will continue to share a number of additional techniques in the coming weeks/months. Here's a quick overview of the first three videos:

  • Light Vs. Dark (Basic): Learn to use existing light with no additional tools to create dramatic portraits. 
  • Day Vs. Night (Advanced): Follow along and pick up this simplified technique for capturing day vs. night portraits in a single frame. 
  • Flashed Ring of Fire (Advanced): Pye shares his take on the ring of fire technique popularized by photographer Sam Hurd.
Please understand that this is an advanced course in that it assumes you already have a fundamental knowledge of photography and lighting. If you're unfamiliar with manual exposure (Photography 101), off-camera lighting (Lighting 2 - 4), or editing (Mastering Lightroom), please go back and reference those courses.
