Creative Headshots on a Budget

October 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Registrations are closed for this event

Taking a creative and impactful portrait or headshot does not require a lot of equipment or money. During this 90-minute workshop, club member and professional photographer Michael Barone will show you how to create many different looks with using only one light and a reflector. Michael will use basic posing techniques, off camera flash, and continuous light to show how you can add drama and a creative element to your portraits without breaking the bank.

This is a FREE MEMBERS ONLY event

Space is limited, so please register. We’ll keep a waiting list and confirm registration.

What to Bring

No equipment is required, but you can bring a camera if you’d like.

Location

Dan’s Camera, 1439 W Fairmont St, Allentown, PA 18106

 

Michael Barone Bio

In one way or another the arts have always been in my life. Whether playing the drums in a small band or creating oil paintings at the age of twelve. I felt that being creative was my only means of self-expression. At the age of 14 I was diagnosis with rheumatoid arthritis and had a hard time holding a paint brush for long periods of time.  I felt that my visual creativity outlet was pretty much dead. All through high school and into college I focused on the sciences and used music as my creative outlet until the time I took an elective in photography. I never looked back.

The camera became my vision, focusing and commenting on the world around me. I quickly changed majors and graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in photography.

From my graduation in 1984 to the present I have had a camera in my hand more days than not. I started my career as a photographer for the Playboy Hotel and Casino and then quickly opened my first studio. Commercial photography has always been my way of paying the bills, but my art has fed my creative soul.

I have been in numerous exhibitions throughout the country and abroad, whether group or solo exhibitions, and found that having an outlet to show my work has kept me creative. Over the years my work has incorporated such subjects as the human form, cityscapes, and since my relocation to the Lehigh Valley, the industrial landscape.
