Free Section From The Guide To Natural Light Portraiture With Dani Diamond
The entire team here at RGG EDU were blown away at the results Dani Diamond gets from his naturally lit portraits. No modifiers, no assistants, no super expensive lights. He creates his work with a full frame Nikon camera body and 2 lenses, the 50mm & 85mm.
Dani is a great example of a new wave of photographers exploring what the new gear can do in order to push the limits of post processing in Photoshop. He has a very methodical and systematic approach to his photography that he goes through on every shoot. In a conversation I had with Dani, he explains that "I have a checklist of about 8-10 things that go through my head on every shoot, and I know if I nail at least 5 of these things on my checklist, I'll have an amazing image."
These 8-10 items are how we built the tutorial itself and the overall structure. We took 9 models to New Orleans and documented Dani's style and thought process on every shoot in order to provide the viewer with several examples of every item on his checklist so that it will eventually become second nature to the shooter.
In addition we have gone deep into Dani's post processing to show you every step of the way in his flawless and signature style of retouching. Check out RGGEDU.com to preview more of the free sections in Dani's tutorial, available now.
