Our program meeting this month will focus on “Flattering your subject….a guide to improving your portraiture”, presented by Sue Altenburg. Her goal is to share with us how to help the subject look their best, the job of a portrait photographer. Knowing the classic rules of portraiture and paying attention to details before pressing the shutter can improve one’s images and save hours on the computer. This program will start with basics of posing the face and body, placement of hands and feet and share other techniques to flatter your subject. Sue hopes to break the “I’ll fix in Photoshop later” mantra and get us to slow down and really see what we can fix in camera.

Sue is a graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography. She is a PPA Master Photographer, Photographic
Craftsman and a Certified Professional Photographer and is the owner of Altenburg Studio in Las Vegas since 1983 specializing in portraiture. She is an International speaker and photographic judge having toured Japan, England, Ireland and Scotland. Sue is also an instructor of photography for the Smithsonian in Washington DC.

It's almost time for our next field trip! This Saturday, April 22, we will be meeting at the last parking lot in the Calico Basin area just outside town.  From Charleston Blvd/ 159, turn right on Calico Basin Rd, go past the Red Springs parking area, continue to follow the road around all of the curves to the gravel parking area on the left at the end of the road.  We will be leaving promptly at 7AM so please arrive a few minutes early to log in and get a quick briefing. 

I recommend wearing sunscreen, a hat,  maybe long sleeves if you are sensitive to the sun. Please bring water to drink along the trail.  I'll have an extra cooler of water as well that will be in my car, available before and after the walk. 

Bring any lens you'd like to shoot with, macro, wide angle, walk around, or fixed. Along with shooting wild flowers, we'll be in beautiful Calico Basin, always a great place to shoot landscapes.
