Take Better Portraits - Introduction Session

If you love the idea of photographing people but find yourself intimidated, then this workshop will help you build your confidence! Great portraits capture an authentic moment and the nuances of a person's character, and this workshop will address how to capture this in your portraits.

Photographing portraits with natural light is a great place to start, and this workshop will give you a better understanding of composition, your communication with your model, lens choices and some simple approaches to lighting that you can try at home. Learn how you can create a soft background blur to your photos to make your portraits really stand out.

Reach your full potential and master the following techniques:

  • What Lenses Are Best To Use
  • Posing Your Subject
  • Lighting Techniques; Using Natural Light
  • Depth Of Field - Isolating Your Subject; Aperture Priority Mode
  • Raw Vs Jpg

This workshop is ideal for anyone interested in photographing individuals, ideal for people wanting to photograph their family, pets or friends. This workshop is designed to expand further from our Introduction to DSLR Photography. The introductory course is not a compulsory pre-requisite to this course, but it may be beneficial for you to have a basic understanding of DSLR functionality before attending.
