Melissa Gray, of G Photo Co, is a lifestyle and wedding photographer based out of Seattle, Washington. Melissa is thrilled to be teaming up with Beyond the Wanderlust for her workshop, Life in Motion: Home Movies for The Modern Photographer. As parents we watch our families grow right before our eyes. All too often we have a photograph to accompany a memory about a significant time in our life, but what about the sound of the kid's giggles, or their first steps? This workshop will encourage you to flip your camera into video mode and document your life in motion. Melissa will walk you through how to create a stop motion video, tips and suggestions on composition while shooting, how to cull and edit your own video using Premiere Pro - as well as walk you through how to choose music to enhance the mood of your movie. If you are looking to create life moments in motion, Melissa would love for you to join her to start your life's journey in motion.
