The Backyard Studio is a creative, easy, and affordable way to make natural light portraits without expensive lights or gear! This workshop shows you how to set up a canopy tent to create “garage door light” and then enhance with the addition of reflectors. This gives you the control and look of studio lighting but it’s all natural. By using reflectors for a main light and a hair or edge light, you can create beautiful professional looking portraits. And it’s all organic!

Bobbi and Lee take you step by step with instruction and demos. We meet in the morning for instruction and shoot with models in the afternoon. The location is Bobbi and Lee’s house in Carver, MA. We are surrounded by trees so you can have a natural background, or we can hang background material to make it just like a studio. Of course, we cover posing and directing, too.

These skills help you take your portrait photography to a higher level. This is one workshop you don’t want to miss!

Cost for Backyard Studio Portrait Workshop is $300 —includes model fees. Limit of 6 participants!

Cost also includes a Zoom meeting/critique one week after the workshop (time & date TBD)
