This is a workshop suitable for beginners or even experienced photographers looking for renewed passion in their photography. We start with a computer presentation that illustrates the various techniques I share re photographing people. From here we go outside to practice location shooting and such things as depth of field and creating scenes. Then we come back into the studio where we concentrate on various lighting set ups.
Throughout the session we practice photography on each other. This is a great way to better feel how your subject feels when you are photographing them. It is so important to make a deep and calm connection when photographing people and this will be illustrated in all sections of the workshop. We will also spend time discussing how to direct your subject to their best aesthetic angles.
I have been in the model photography since 1989 and have a enormous passion for what I do.Whilst my career has featured much model photography the workshops are geared towards photographing all ages and variety of people. Also the workshops are run in a very relaxed and non pressuring way. Please note that these mid week sessions are like a hibby for me. So I am happy to run them even if only one person books in.
Melbourne Photography Workshops is a photography group that is about education and fun. There are regular meetups that cover the technical and hands on aspects of photographing people. Genres include portrait, art nude, fitness and fashion. Please feel free to forward any questions you may have.
Best Wishes Tony Ryan.
