Get ready to take your wedding and portrait photos to the next level with Lindsay Adler, fashion and portrait photographer, as she takes you on location and shows you how to use your creativity to tell a story with drama and flair! Lindsay teaches you about all of the elements you’ll need, from props to locations and makeup to posing, to go beyond what is expected to create stunning photographs and give your subjects an experience they’ll never forget.

Video transcripts available with a subscription.

Join Lindsay on location as she describes the ingredients of a successful fashion flair photo shoot.
Choosing the location is a key element of the story you are trying to tell. The first shoot is using the theme of Little Red Riding Hood to tell the story of this couple, and finding the right forest backdrop is essential to the story.
You may work with a couple or client that wants to include the family pet in the shoot and, if you are creative with your theme, you can find fun ways to work them into the story.
Time for a few close up beauty shots along with some great tips for working with subjects who may not be comfortable in front of the lens.
It's not always necessary to make a big production out of a couples shoot, but with the right ingredients and a little creativity you can create images that really stand out from the rest.
With a new couple comes a new story to tell, and in this case the shoot will have a Princess and the Frog theme. Before the shooting starts Lindsay shares series of inexpensive props and tools that you can use to create incredibly unique and creative photos.
The beauty shot is one of the more important shots to get as you tell the story of the couple you are working with. Lindsay shows you a number of different ways to add fashion flair to this classic shot.
With the beauty shots done, Lindsay moves on to some fun and playful couple poses using cool props that continue to tell the story.
Sometimes a theme can be as simple as a color. Lindsay heads into the studio for a fashion flair shoot packed with tips and tricks on lighting and posing to help you take your work from ordinary to extraordinary.
Staying in the studio and continuing with the red theme, Lindsay shares more lighting and posing tips from full body to tight close up portraits.
The beauty dish is one of the most commonly used lighting tools in fashion photography. Learn a number of different poses and lighting setups for using a beauty dish with flair.
Lindsay wraps up the class with a quick lesson on adding fashion flair with a fluorescent ring light. This daylight balanced ring light is a constant light source, which makes it easy to see the results as you shoot right through it.

    I absoultely loved this course. Im into shooting pet photography and looking to expand the creativity thats used in fashion photography. I learned more about the “whys” we shoot a certain way, new techiniques with lighting, angles.. All good stuff.. etc.. Also Lindsay explains things in whole and in a way its easy for anyone to pick it up. Its personable. The best part was when she gets into detail of props, tools and mentioned she brings her camera into craft stores to try different flares and ideas to photos, it bascially made me crap my pants that a professional comes from the same place I do. There is hope for the amatures out there! Thanks again for the great videos. Excellent source for anyone looking into more creativty whether its people, objects or scenery shooting!! —- Yes, please post my feedback

    Loved it! Learned a lot from Lindsay — she has some great tips and ideas that are simple; more important, she doesn’t send you running off to B&H to spend your life’s savings. Really enjoyed the outside shots that told a “story.” The idea with the frog was super and daring. —- Yes, please post my feedback

    This is probably one of the best courses I’ve watched on Kelby Training. Lindsay’s approach is that of a storyteller and she’s creating these beautifully crafted peices of art through her story. She’s also technically gifted but teaches in a creative way. Her technical prowess seems secondary to the art of visual storytelling. I look forward to more courses with Lindsay!

    Great from start to finish. Wonderful job, Lindsay. Very simple setups that anyone can try. The only downside, it makes me want to purchase an 85mm f1.4!
