In this workshop, Amber Damour will dive deep into how to create unique storytelling painterly portraits. She will guide you through the conception of an idea and how to exercise your creative muscles to bring that idea to life through intricate post processing. For outdoor portraiture, she will discuss how to find the right natural and available light to suit your subject matter as well as camera settings and lens choices to help create the correct canvas for painterly images. We will also discuss studio portraits & lighting techniques with a hands-on portion where you all will have the opportunity to photograph beautiful models & sets. From there, she will move through advanced skin retouching, background adjustments, color grading, painterly touches, adding depth & dimension to your images and more to bring your final imagery to life.
I am a portrait photographer based in Dallas, Texas and I work with children, families, maternity and seniors. I focus on creating storytelling imagery for my clients by creating a real connection with them and designing heirloom artwork for their families. I was a Diamond Photographer of the Year for PPA in 2020 & 2021, GIA Finalist in 2020 & 2021 as well as receiving my Master of Photography degree. Most recently, I received the first place portrait trophy at WPPI 2022 and won several awards including Best of Show at the 2022 TPPA competition.
