1:1 Mentoring with Sharon O'Rourke


This 4 day programme is specifically designed for amateur and professional photographers. If you're just starting out in your photography career or feel like you've been watching a lot of online tutorials but not getting anywhere, a newborn workshop is the perfect way to learn new techniques and gain great knowledge that will help kick start your creativity, helping you to find your own personal style as a newborn photographer.


What you will need - 

– DSLR camera (knowledge of using manual settings)

– Lens: 50mm, 35mm or 24-70mm

Day two: 
I will take a session as if it were a normal client session, running the session as I would every day. (This will be a model call not a paid session)
You will be invited to ask questions and take notes and pull back images. 
I will discuss posing flow, wrapping, what to do if baby does not sleep, safety, composites, and camera angles. 
You will learn about posing family and siblings. 

Day three: 
You will run a session as I had done the day before, with me at hand to help. (This will be a model call not a paid session)
