Daylight Portraits in the City
Are you one of those people that are constantly chopping off people's heads hands and feet in portraits? Then this work shop for you. It has been designed to get you composing and taking portraits as fast as possible, and to get you moving forward with your photographic technique. You'll learn about basic composition techniques from full body, to extreme close ups, and everything in between. You'll also learn about camera settings, and using natural light and reflectors to the best advantage to give your portraits that something special. The workshop is restricted to 6 people to ensure that everyone gets the support they need to learn. If there are more that 3 people on the wait list, I will add another instructor to help cater with the increased class size. I have been an educator for over 8 years, holding qualifications in training and assessment, as well as completing 2 years of formal photography training. Please feel free to bring along your digital, film camera, or mobile device to this class Costs - $55 per person when you pay in advance via Paypal The payment option for PayPal will appear after you RSVP to the class.
