The most important part of being a portrait photographer is to be confident and in control when working with people. We know how difficult it can be to get the best results when you're not really sure how to pose people in the most flattering way. This hands on workshop is the next step to improving your portrait skills whether working with models, families or even friends.
In this 90 minute portrait and modelling workshop we will be offering you guidance on posing male and female subjects so they can look their best in front of the camera.
You will cover a variety of poses - learn how to communicate with your subject - learn how to find inspiration for your posing.
You'll be able to put theory in to practice by practicing directing a model and being directed in addition to photographing male and female models. You do not need to have any experience of working with models. Bring your camera and if you'd like to bring your own accessories such as a reflector or flash. We will be providing some flash kit as well. If you need it there will be plenty of time for questions.
What you will need:
An SLR or similar camera with standard hot-shoe. If you do not have a standard hot-shoe you will need to provide an adapter. If you are in doubt ask to make sure you are not disappointed on the day.
You will need to know how to put your camera into Manual mode and change the aperture and shutter speed. If you aren't sure bring your manual with you or have a look online before the day.
The models will be expecting to take away a copy of the images at the end of the session. You will need to shoot Jpeg or Raw & Large Jpeg so please come with clean memory cards so we can download the images quickly.
