I spoke with Jeni of Jennifer Green Photography about her upcoming photography presentations at this year’s Beauty and Light Seminar in Kennett Square, PA. Jeni will be sharing her techniques and insider tips on posing couples to create beautifully intimate and authentic wedding and engagement photos.
I got started in photography in 2006 when I was attending concerts. I was taking lots of photos with my point and shoot and people started to tell me that I had a good eye. I ended up buying my first DSLR and had my first real assignment in 2007. The rest snowballed from there.
Nikon Gear that is ever changing. My style is always evolving in terms of what sorts of lenses I work with. Currently I’m shooting Nikon D700’s with a 24-70, 50 prime, 85 prime and 80-200. I have several flashes and OCF gear for lighting
Honestly– I’ve always wanted to be a celebrity photographer– shooting studio type portraits. I’m so interested in showing the souls of people we idolize through the lens.
I think my proudest moments are just the ones where I see my vision brought to life.
I’m working still on improving off camera flash techniques.
I can’t really explain why but I love love. I aim every time I photograph a couple to show the genuine emotion and bond between the couple. Posing a couple for me is so much more than just “stand here, wrap your arm” its about how you can get their personalities to show through and how you can show their comfort and vulnerabilities through your lens.
I think you’ll learn about interacting with people, even strangers. You’ll be able to see the way that I work with a couple to bring their true selves through. You’ll be able to see how I go from start to finish to get a session that truly represents the couple. I think that anyone will benefit, even if they don’t shoot couples, because making the people we photography comfortable is important with every session.
I’m incredibly excited about Vikki Sloviter’s Ballet Photography. I love movement and I’m very interested in understanding how it is Vikki sets up her shots.
Excited to learn more? Be sure to join us for a day of photography education and inspiration at The Beauty and Light Seminar in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania on May 17, 2015.
