Photographer Bobbi Lane has shared with us many of her secrets for creating gorgeous portrait photography in two Webinars. Here, in her own words, she goes into detail about the most recent session she gave for PocketWizard viewers.

The idea for my portrait of the young woman with the nest and egg and feathers came out of a dream. I am a committed believer in exercising creativity and going through several processes to help develop ideas. One of the first steps in that process is brainstorming with other creative people, then writing down words to trigger ideas, and then letting it rest a bit and coming back to revisit the ideas in a few days. My associate Matt Burdick and I were sitting around one day talking about “what’s cool.” We tossed around a lot of concepts and then I arrived at “feathers.” I’ve been a birder all my life, even worked one summer at a bird observatory/banding station in Manomet, Massachusetts. I find and collect feathers wherever I go. To me, feathers are really cool.
Creative Storytelling Portraits with Bobbi Lane
February 21, 2013 at 1:00pm EST
FREE LIVE VIDEO SEMINAR, hosted by Joe Brady
Join us as we present special guest photographer Bobbi Lane in a free Webinar sponsored by PocketWizard. During this event, Lane will create a series of storytelling portraits for a high school senior. The concept of a storytelling portrait can elevate the quality of your photography by adding another dimension, adding impact and making your images more personal.
Starting with concept and inspiration, Bobbi will explain the set and gear she uses to craft the lighting for the correct mood and emphasis of each portrait. Using the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radio triggers gives Bobbi the creative freedom to control her lights from both her camera and her Sekonic Light Meter.
You’ll have a front row seat behind the scenes as Bobbi takes us through her process, from inspiration to setup, and on to final image.
Please note, there is no pre-registration. Simply bookmark and visit this page on February 21, 2013 at 1:00pm EST and enter your E-Mail address, Postal Code and Country below and the live streaming video will begin!

Join us on November 27, 2012 at 1pm EST for this free live video seminar sponsored by PocketWizard.
Spend an hour with guest photographer Bobbi Lane as she demonstrates the techniques used to create a conceptual image on location, a “romantic portrait”, perhaps as a gift from the bride to the groom. We’ll have Bobbi live in the studio where she can explain in detail the concept, the process, the tools and the final results to creating a beautiful image.
Learn how Bobbi uses fill flash to open shadows and create a more pleasing light and skin tone. While on-camera flash can provide fill, the light sources are still small and often don’t provide a soft and effective illumination. Bobbi will take the flash off camera, using the PocketWizard MiniTT1® and FlexTT5® to create a more pleasing light. Take advantage of the live chat room to ask Bobbi questions as she takes us through the creative process.
