Portrait Posing with Models

  • Aug 4, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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.

Schedule:

• Instruction on posing and communicating with models
• Practice of poses - attendees will be paired off and have an opportunity to direct and be directed into poses
• 10 minute discussion, what worked well, what you need help with
• Practice with models

    Hi, I was planning to attend and was paid up but public transport has let me down and I can't get there. :-( My place is now available. Hope you all have a terrific day!

    Pete.

    • Hannah

      Noooo :( I wanted to come and have been checking in daily but it's too late notice for me to make it now :(

      August 4, 2013

    • Ray

      Thanks mate, but I've already been told it's all too late. :-) The gang-plank has been raised and the ship is sailing. lol

      August 4, 2013

  • Farnz

    Sorry, Hannah, I changed my RSVP as soon I knew I wasn't going to make it. Still sitting on a train that's going nowhere with no announcements telling us when we might be on the move again. Grrrr.

    August 4, 2013

    • Hannah

      There's a big cycling event today that might be causing your delays. Good luck!

      August 4, 2013

    • Ray

      Yup! There definitely is. It's messing with a lot of the public transportation. But saying that, I'm going out now to see if I can capture a few shots. Something I was hoping to do after this meet-up.

      August 4, 2013

  • Farnz

    Engineering works strike again! :-(

  • Ray

    I know I'm very late in posing this question, but would it be possible to still attend?
