creativeLIVE Attendee Mood Board Previews

What a week! On Tuesday I had my creativeLIVE pre-workshop shoot and LOVED it!

Then on Wednesday I talked non-stop from 9am to 4pm about social media! Thank you for all the positive feedback on that course. I really tried to pour my brain out to you all and share all of my experiences (good and bad) with social media and how I utilize it to grow my business. So again, thanks for the tweets, facebook messages, and positive feelings!

The important part of this blog post is sharing what is going on during DAY 3 of my creativeLIVE workshop. Throughout my creativeLIVE workshop I am teaching how to utilize techniques of fashion photography and apply them to your portrait and wedding work to create striking imagery. Whenever I do a fashion editorials, I always plan out the concept of my shoots with a mood board. A mood board is a way to get everyone on the same page for the shoot and communicate the general mood/goals. It includes details of the model (or client), hair and makeup ideas, lighting ideas, clothing or anything else relevant so everyone has a similar vision of the end result and therefore can work together to achieve these visual goals.

On Day 3 of my creativeLIVE, I have asked all 6 of my audience members to perform a fashion flair shoot based on their specialty in photography. We have someone doing fashion flair sessions LIVE of each of the following on Sunday!! ::

- Senior portrait

- Dancer

- Boudoir

- Family

- Bridal

- Model Portfolio

 

Below you can see the mood boards I have asked each of them to create to help communicate their ideas to the audience out there!!!

I'm not going to give away too much information about exactly whats happening... I'll be sharing that during the class June 1-3!

 

GIVEAWAYS:  I want you to share what type of photography YOU do, and create a mood board for a shoot you'd like to execute. I will be picking some of my favorite mood boards to share/mention in my social media, and will give away some awesome SURPRISE giveaways to my favorites!! Post your mood boards and let me know your specialty in photography!! http://www.flickr.com/groups/lindsayadler/ http://www.facebook.com/groups/creativeLIVE.Adler/ 

 

Without further adieu, here are the mood boards my attendees have developed! ENJOY!

  • Hi…I would love to participate in the mood board contest…but do I have to use my own pictures for that? Is it “legal” to take pictures from the web, like from pinterest, for the contest?
    Thanks…I`m looking forward to watching the workshop! I`m really excited!

  • Lindsay,

  • I am watching your second day on CL and I wanted to just take a quick moment and thank you for your enthusiasm and passion. I look forward to taking some of your energy and moving myself forward and out of my current rut by getting back to my personal work.

    Thank you.

  • Loving your workshop! Getting so many ideas and inspiration, and I love how you are so down to earth despite being such a fantastic photographer. Can’t wait to see Sunday’s workshop… thank you thank you!

  • Thoroughly enjoying this workshop from Syracuse, NY. I was happily surprised to see one of my own images posted here on a mood board. 🙂 Julie selected my own “Ice Queen” image as hair inspiration – top row, third from left. Pretty cool.

    Hi Lindsey;

    I enjoyed watching your workshop, I am a student at Harrington College of Design in Chicago. I am pursuing my Associates degree in Photography. I have a difficult time with the creative part at the time of photo shoot assignments, and I have been inspired by your ideas and techniques. I missed the part about the mood boards and how to create them. I believe this will help me a great deal. From looking at the above moodboards, do I just pull images from the internet to use as ideas? I also liked the idea about making inspiration folders, I looked at other photographers but didn’t save the photos, I felt like I would be cheating. You have inspired me a great deal, Thank you so much.
