In this session Wes Kroninger will guide you on a tour of 3 different studios where 3 different photographers will give you their tips on photographing virtual teams for volume photography. We will speak with Sean Bass in Ohio about the photographic basics of virtual groups. Sean will discuss set up, metering, lighting and (most importantly) how to keep the individual players scaled properly in the final image. We will then talk with photographer Sheryl Bashore in Pennsylvania about how dance photography can be unique using this virtual group process. She will guide you through her experiences of creating these virtual groups for dance schools in a volume setting. Then, Dana Chapman in Virginia will discuss how to put this knowledge together and train staff photographers to create these images quickly, creatively and consistently. Because as business owners we know the best workflow is the one someone else can do.
