Details

Let's meetup and practise potraiture, thinking about lights and props, lenses, background, etc.

We will shoot outside and possibly inside - thinking about background and depth of field. It is possible to practise using structures (like bridges, walls that cast shade, etc.) to direct available light, and add more light where you want it by using reflectors and flashes with softboxes. Let's practise thinking about lighting the hair/back of the head and the type of facial lighting (see, for example, here: https://digital-photography-school.com/6-portrait-lighting-patterns-every-photographer-should-know/). What about using props like scarves or something else?

As with all Photoresk outings, the aim is to have fun, but of course we can learn from each other and experiment, too!
