STRIKE A POSE
Tired of not getting good live photos of your acts at shows? Want to look confident onstage or in studio and embrace the power of stillness? Just want to look your best in a selfie? Learn the magic of classic pin-up posing with international pin-up expert Bettina May, and you’ll be the star of photos, stage, and life! All genders and bodies will benefit. During the class, students will have an opportunity to speak with Bettina May about her experience as both a published pin-up model and photographer in a Q & A setting, and then get hands-on experience trying out her poses, playing with different characters, and get individual assistance and correction with posing. Come dressed to move, and wear sturdy heels if you like.
