What we're about
Thank you so much for visiting this page .
The objective of this group is to promote, practice and share the fundamentals of portrait photography. It is open to every photo enthusiast from the beginning amateur to the established professional interested in enhancing their skills in the art of portraiture.
A "Portrait" is much more than a snapshot. A portrait is a carefully orchestrated image that conveys a message, captures the essence of its subjects and always makes them look their best. This will be the primary focus of this community, to practice and learn the basic elements of portraiture: lighting, posing, composition, expression, message and commercial value; through practice, critique and interaction with other photographers.
There will be educational presentations, portfolio building sessions, critique meetups, and just fun get-togethers. Meetup locations will vary according to sessions planned, we will work in studio and outdoors, using available or artificial lights. Lighting and Posing will be priorities, therefore we will be working with all types of subjects, not necessarily professional models, the objective is to learn how to direct anyone and capture professional quality portraits. Our only suggestion is that you have basic knowledge of photographic exposure and understand your camera functions.
We hope this group is just what you were looking for, join us and let's create art!
