She will lead participants in a discovery of the importance of lighting in family and friend portraiture using both natural and artificial lighting.

A family/friend ticket (two to six members) will include: instructions, supplies, photography art, SLR camera (bring your own camera to follow along), photography portraits, basic photoshop, photography games, back drops and lighting, seasonal portraits, Photoshopped photos (before and after) and photography games.
