Portraiture Photography Course

All of us want to take good portraits, it is something that eludes and frustrates, this course helps to unlock the mysteries of good portraiture. It gives sound practical advice through

demonstration, slide presentation and review of assignments. Covering camera types, lens choice, depth of field, posing, props, shooting by available light and a brief introduction to using

flash and studio lighting. Based on my experience as a portrait photographer for more than 30 years I will tell you what I know, the tips and tricks to get the best images.

This course will enable you to make fine portraits of your family and friends. As with all our courses we do not set homework but encourage our students to undertake the assignments that will help them to learn. This homestudy work will be uploaded to a blog site and collected from there to be shown and discussed in class, this is always one of the most valuable aspects
