Born in Darmstadt, Germany, Kate Woodman was brought up in Connecticut and currently calls Portland, Oregon home. A structural engineer by training, Kate developed her love of photography in 2011 while investigating earthquake damage in New Zealand. What began as a compulsion to document the environment expanded into a fascination for narrative storytelling, typically with a conceptual twist. Her engineering background serves her well in her photography, provoking a sense of balance and attention to detail and engendering a creative approach to the technical challenges of creating an image.
Every great image tells a story, and Kate takes narrative to another level. - Wally A.
Awesome tutorial. Keep up the good work
What can I say? PRO EDU always produces top notch tutorials, and this one is no exception. Kate is a master at story telling with her images, so it was awesome watching her go through her process from start to finish. Kate talks about the components needed to create compelling narratives in your images and how to flesh out your ideas. With each shoot we get to watch (there are 6 of them!), Kate discusses how the colors in the scene work with the story and emotion. She tells you why she is lighting specific ways and why she makes the editing choices she does. It is a superb tutorial, and I highly recommend it if you want to take your images from good to amazing! I have already expanded details of some ideas I have had, and now I am super excited to pull it all together and start shooting!
Thanks Kate Woodman, Alex and the whole Pro Edu team! All the photos, the narrative, the colors were amazing!
Loved this tutorial! It is a popular opinion that if you want to increase the level of your work you need the viewer to have an emotional connection with your images. It makes the difference between a mediocre image and an image that makes clients remember and think about you for their future work. Kate really dives deep into this process with her tutorial and lays it out in an easy to digest manner so that you're are now able to start doing the same thing for your images in the future.
Would highly recommend for all photographers, no matter what style of photography you do.
