There’s something so powerful about holding your memories in your hand.

Join Anita Perminova in a Breakout session that will help you to create emotive, yet simple, portraits using natural lighting techniques. You’ll get an inside look at how she brings her vision to life– you’ll see how she sets her scene, captures the image and edits with the printed photograph in mind. Throughout the Breakout, Anita shares her process for creating emotive portraits, shooting with Lensbaby lenses, understanding and using color management, as well as making shooting and post-production decisions.
Anita even walks you through her process for choosing a suitable paper for the finished print, whether you are using a custom printer or an online printing service. With easy to follow reading materials and videos on the elements needed to produce quality portraits and prints, the information and techniques Anita teaches apply to all photographers (no matter what genre you shoot!).
