Despite experiencing the first taste of winter during our recent Confidence on Camera Workshops for Women held in our OV&P Studio, this certainly did not deter two gorgeous groups of ladies from “Rocking That Camera” in their photos and videos, each contributing meaningfully to their visual portfolios.
Understanding first hand the nerves and butterflies of being in front of the camera and watching a group of dynamic ladies discreetly feeling the same, it was wonderful to witness how Naomi led our group to that comfortable space of understanding that “this is just a camera; we have the power to determine what it captures”. Even more magical to see was the way that each one noticed how they can have their own beautiful photo’s and videos, enhanced by their unique poses and nuances – ultimately walking away with a sense of “I can do this”!
Amidst the outfit changes, make-up touchups, scene setting changes as well as fun and laughter, what a sense of pleasure it provides to impart insight, inspiration and practical tips that enable us to pave the way forward so that more and more women are able to enjoy fabulous photo’s and videos.
In addition to sharing valuable input to help us hone our workshops for even greater impact, these special ladies gave us exceptional testimonials. Follow that link to see what they had to say, along with their beautiful individual photos. In the words of one of them: “The Rock That Camera workshop is really empowering. It gives one confidence and awareness on how to best take pictures that reflect your message and character. Every woman needs this session.” – Rejoice Kea Nxumalo, Chairperson, SA Association of Investors.
According to a 2011 survey by the manufacturers of Dove soap called The Real Truth About Beauty: Revisited, only 4% of women worldwide consider themselves beautiful. Our aim is to significantly increase that figure, so here’s to embracing our beauty and rocking all cameras now and into the future!
