Photographing people anywhere, home or abroad, presents many challenges to the traveling photographer. Honoring, respecting and communicating with your subject are the first steps to making a meaningful and storytelling photograph. The technical concerns about light, camera angle and lenses, backgrounds, selective focus, and composition can sometimes overshadow the
importance of making a connection with another human being. Language barriers can be overcome with a smile, a great attitude and tone of voice, allowing you to communicate without words.  It's imperative to use good lighting techniques, both natural and with flash, to create the mood and description of the scene and capture the essence. Patience and observation help the photographer choose the right time and place to capture the subject appropriately.

Bobbi shares her many tips and multiple experiences in both common place and exotic locations. This seminar will help you connect with people, develop a deeper understand of what all humans have in common, and assist you to make photographs that emotionally effect and enlighten the viewer. Come on this journey, laugh and cry with Bobbi and her travels to Ethiopia, Myanmar, Venice for Carnival, Turkey, Hong Kong, Dubai and Oman and discover  the keys to making great portraits.
