We are thrilled to have Canon Explorer of Light Michele Celentano as a PhotoCon Keynote Speaker this year.
Michele is one of an elite group of photographers to be sought out by Canon USA to represent their company as an Explorer of Light. Only 50 photographers nationwide hold this honor. Michele and her images were recently featured in numerous advertisements for Canon and their new professional line of cameras. In addition to running her studio full time, Michele continues to travel internationally to teach and lecture on the subject of professional photography and imagery.
At PhotoCon 2019, Michele will share her insight into photographing people and creating consistent and beautiful portraits. You will gain insight into posing, the three languages of posing, and communication skills. Learn simple techniques for posing people in groups of 2 to 100. Almost all genres of photographing at some time or another require posing groups of people together, and this is one of the most feared tasks photographers often face. Whether you photograph weddings, families, corporate events, schools, or teams, you will gain great insight into posing groups of all sizes quickly and without stressing.
Michele will be demonstrating live on stage posing subjects in a natural relaxed way, putting groups of all sizes together, and making people look thinner and younger without using a computer. Be prepared to be onstage if you attend this program! As many people as possible will participate in a large group pose and you will be amazed at how fast groups can be assembled. If you would like to be a part of the live demonstration, wear a black shirt. In today’s market, great posing and lighting skills are so important… cameras, lenses, and computer techniques will only go so far. Your best images start with you and with what you create in the camera. You will walk away from this seminar with new ideas you can put to good use right away!
Michele was awarded her Craftsmen Degree from the Professional Photographers of America and the Accolade of Photographic Mastery from Wedding and Portrait Photographers International. Her artwork has been published in literary works such as Rangefinder, American Photographer, Shutterbug, Studio Photography as well as numerous books on the art of photography. She demonstrates the timeless beauty and importance of portrait photography and says “you never truly know the value of a portrait until it becomes all you have left.”
We hope you’ll join us at PhotoCon 2019, our biggest year yet! There’s still time to grab your tickets here.
