Portrait Beginners' guide - Learn the dos and don'ts of Portraiture

Welcome to Portraiture!. This workshop is a full guide to the fundamentals of portraiture. You'll learn: Posing, capturing the moments, Gestures, Body language, backgrounds, shooting angles, and directing and interacting with your subjects. Additionally, you'll learn how to work with simple lighting, including natural light, window light, and simple home made lighting tricks that will efficiently enhance the look of your subjects. You'll also learn environmental portrait and gaining speed in shooting.

This course is highly recommended whether you are shooting candids, studio type portraiture, or street and environmental.

Requirements: Any digital camera including Phone cameras and mirrorless with Automatic mode. Though not required, we highly recommend knowing the basics of your camera. This course will not cover camera settings and the basics of shooting.

Course Structure Suggestion: This course covers all of the basics and we therefore highly recommend that it is taken before any other Portrait course.

Notes on film cameras: Please note that while most content of this course is applicable to digital cameras, you are welcome to attend as long as your film camera has an automatic shooting mode.
Should the assigned instructor become suddenly unavailable, we’ll allocate a substitute.
