TAKE HIGH-QUALITY PORTRAITS AT HOME 1-DAY
Classes restricted to 4 students (minimum)
Proof of double-vaccination required
Saturday 7th May 2022 10.30am - 5.00pm. Lunch is not included
This session will be held in my home in my 12x16 dining room where ALL the photos you see here were taken.
After all, there's no point teaching you what can be done in a small space unless we really use one!
All of the photographs you see on this page were taken in a home like yours, not in a studio. While lots of space and gear are nice, you don't need a studio and lots of expensive kit to take high-quality portraits of family and friends.
What you do need is to understand the basic principals of how light works and instruction on how you can use that knowledge to get great results from your portrait photography.
I will show you how you can start to improve your portraits immediately. We will start from the basics - a kitchen window and a piece of white card as a reflector - moving all the way up through single light setups using an inexpensive flashgun, to more complex twin-light setups using a variety of modifiers and lights.
We will also talk about posing non-models for the best looks and how to get people and children to relax while being photographed.
Through the day I will instruct you how to gradually add to that initial kit piece-by-piece over a period of time to assemble a more flexible, versatile home-lighting system.
