    Default Makeover Course No.2

    Hi everyone,

    After the first successful class, I am organizing a second Makeover Studio Course @ Stanley Lim Colour Centre as there were some members who were interested but miss the first intake.

    This is not a one time shoot which you learn nothing but a hands on course which I will personally look into everyone's skills. Those venturing into this line, will command a good instant income. Besides making some money you get to shoot too. Why pay your hard earn money and shoot only when you can attend this course and improve your skills. On top of it you still get to shoot 2 models!

    Here are the details:-

    Venue: Stanley Lim Colour Centre (Midlink Plaza, Middle Road)
    Instructor: Danny
    Course fee:$270 for SLR user and $250 for DSLR users
    Models : 1 Female and 1 Male
    Film : 1 roll of film is provided for each practical lesson for SLR users only. DSLR users must print their own prints or bring their laptops (includes developing and printing of 3R size for SLR users only)
    Time : 7-9pm (Date is not fixed yet but most probably will be every Tuesday night)
    Vacancies : 8 (max)
    Equipment : DSLR or SLR only with a portrait lens for shooting face and half body. (Those wants to learn but do not have a SLR/DLSR, pls let me know what camera you have)
    Lightings : Provide 3 different lightings setups.
    Lesson will commence on : 3rd or 10th February

    Package: 4 lessons
    1st lesson : Learn the basic theory about what makeover is all about. You will be learning on how to coordinate, shoot, compose, pose and communicate with your subjects and setup basic lightings skills.

    2nd lesson : Practical course - You will be shooting a Male Model. I will be guiding each every individual on what to look out for. Each Photographer will get to shoot 15 minutes for the first outfit and basic lighting setup. Another 15 minutes for the second different lighting setup.

    3rd lesson : Review, critics and comments on the photos taken on your 2nd lessons. I will be advising all of you on what went wrong and how to improve from here. Other comments are welcome.

    4th lesson : Practical course - You will be shooting a Female Model. I will be guiding each every individual again on what to look for. Male and Female have different poses. So that is why I have a male and a female.Each Photographer will get to shoot 15 minutes for the first outfit and basic lighting setup. Another 15 minutes for the second different lighting setup.


    For you info, models are provided with make-up and hair styling as part of the package. No charge but the class must have min 6 and max 8 photographers.

    After the last lesson, those who is interested to bring down their photos individually or as a group will be fine with me. I will be at Stanley Lim Colour Centre (from 1pm to 6pm) for anyone who wants to get their photos review again.

    Those interested please proceed to the studio to pay the deposit to Joanne.
    You can reach her at 98583502. Please PM after you have paid her so that I can update here.

    All students will be giving 1 hour free for usage of studio anytime but must make an appointment. This is will be given after you all finish the course.

    "I will personnaly make sure that all students who attend my course will improve their skills in lighting, posing and communcations. If I think they are still unable to reach my standard, I will not pass them until I deem ok. Don't worry there will be no extra charge for this part as I have my own personnal standard I must keep and maintain."

    Default Those who wants to know..........

    If you are wondering what's the diff with Makeover Courses and Actual Wedding Day. The reason for my explanation is that this are these are the 2 most popular photoshoots in the market. Some CS members ask me what's the diff.

    Well in Makeover Photography you have total control on your lightings, poses and of course your subjects. Learning how to control the basic setups in lightings, poses and commucations with your subjects will make you be able to control many possible situation, let it be indoor or outdoor. The possiblity is endless. If you find the pose of your subject is still not right, there is always a chance of capturing her/him again.

    In Actual Wedding Day, you lean towards more the getting your creativity skills and lighting into action. It's more to photojournalism which you capture that moment which only happens in a matter of less than a second. You do get some control but basically in lighting conditions only. Some poses may be repeatable but in some situations, you cannot ask the couple repeat again.

    Thanks!

    How about a basic studio course for those who don't have any knowledge about lightings and stuff?

    Default Hi Junyang!

    Well basically this is more like a course. The only differance is this course is meant for those who have some experience in photography. I can modify this course for you if you are a newbie/amatuer/beginner.

    As for your case, if you are a beginner who knows nothing about lighting and other stuffs, I will personnaly teach you one on one just for you. You will need to top up another $130.00. I will give you an additional 3 classes (1 session will last about 2 hours) just for you. You will start with me personally and then continue with the rest when the first class starts. I will teach you the basics on exposures, films, lightings and compostions.

    If you find this is ok, pls PM me. Thanks.

    For your info, this girl without make up is a total plain jane. As you mentioned "make-up are suppose to be enhanced to fill in the high key lightings" So as you can see her make up is pretty heavy. As I have total control over my lightings and makeup, it makes one look natural although with heavy makeup on. So this girl has been enhance already. She really look like another normal girl without make up and hairdo.

    Oh another thing, I know you are a girl. So guys look at girls from a very different perspective from a girl. Some may say RuthBaby is good looking, another may say she is just normal. If you are not there to witness a photoshoot, you cannot really judge from the photo.

    You must be there to view what the actual shoot, then you know that this girl has been enhance to look naturally good. I can make you look good too but if you give a me chance. I doubt you will anyway as I can sense you are not into this makeover thingy.

    It's how you bring the person's character which makes the photos look great. Looking good is not enough without giving them confidence in themselves. Some of my customers come to makeover to boost their moral.

    My course is not about making someone look good only. It's about learning how to communicate with your subject, shoot them within a certain time frame and make them look good. Shooting people is one of the most challenging thing in photography. How to make them look naturally beautiful without noticing too much makeup on their face.

    Same goes with food photography. For example is how to shoot a burger and french fries which looks delicious as you cannot taste or smell a piece of photo, right?

    Thank you for your comments.

    anyway, people should at least go for your workshop, those that shoot with lightings to learn posing also. besides you shoot this more often than i do, you would be better to teach this than me. :-)
    No worries mate! You graduate from RMIT as well?

    the main thing in makeover is communication, how to sweet talk the customer until the ugliest picture turns to their favorite pic. I was the operations Manager and cheif photographer in Glamourshots..
    no gd no gd!
    their makeup no gd!
    no communication!
