Making Moment Driven Pictures: Documentary Family Photography

BREAKOUT DESCRIPTION

Nothing is better than real life and pictures of real-life moments make the viewer connect to the subjects and the photograph. The catch is that making great real-life moment pictures is hard…really, really hard. Documentary family photography is not just about “capturing everyday life”– it’s about making deliberate, well-thought-out photographs that will elicit an emotional response from the viewer, all while not controlling or influencing the environment in any way. Additionally, the more personally connected the photographer is to their own point of view, the stronger the end result will be. This Breakout is an introduction to making moment-driven pictures and embracing the art of real-life photography.

“I am not sure there are any words that could efficiently sum up how incredible this breakout is. Kirsten Lewis is THE most talented family photojournalist…hands down! Therefore, it is a pinnacle opportunity *indeed* to have the opportunity to learn from her. I took Kirsten’s first Creative Live class back in 2014, and said class was the biggest game changer within my photography journey. She doesn’t just teach photography…she teaches one how to be genuine and honest with ourselves and with clients. Please note: This class does, in fact, touch on subjects that are *not* covered in Kirsten’s Creative Live classes. You will not be disappointed with this class, and you can bet your bottom dollar you will want to go through the materials, again and again, for inspiration!” – Bethany Doerr

“I have been in both of Kirsten’s Creative Live classes as a live audience member and have learned so much from her rich teaching. I wasn’t sure this breakout would have anything “new” to offer, but of course it does! I really appreciate Kirsten’s clear teaching style and the passionate way she communicates with her students. She has definitely pushed me as an artist!” – Jessica Uhler

“There are a lot of photographers out there whose work is inspiring, and Kirsten’s certainly is, but there aren’t as many photographers who have real talent in the teaching department. Kirsten does. She explains things so clearly. Her content is more than just inspirational fluff- it’s nuts and bolts advice that help take your photos from “cute” to powerful and poignant. This class is worth soooooo much more than the small investment they are asking. I have photos I’ve taken of my kids that I would not have made in the same way. Priceless, powerful photos. I’m so thankful!” -DANIELLE NORRIS-GARDNER

“I absolutely love Kirsten’s breakout! I feel like I manifested it, I have been following her work for over a year now and have been soaking up all her goodness! The way she teaches is amazing, she’s just so honest, real and funny! She does a great job explaining not only the technically side, and rules of documentary photography, but also how to make a strong composition & image! This was so helpful when you are just starting out in documentary photography or even a year or two into it!” -LAUREN BODWELL
