Course Overview:
Environmental Portraits are all the fashion, for the last decade we have all been photographing portraits in a white studio. But no more, we all want something different from the generic white studio look and Out & About Portraits will teach you the skills needed to head back outside with your subjects and shoot great portrait sessions. We will teach you about how to structure the shoot, how to take pro-portraits and how to shoot using daylight and off camera flash. Spread over the day there is a classroom session follwed by a shoot with a model. There are only a maximum of 10 delegates on each course which will give you more than enough opportunity to try all the techniques and get the shots you need. As always at Photobarn the copyright belongs to you so you can use the images for display. N.B. You will need a DSLR for this course, Bridge and Compact camera's are not suitable for this course. You will also have a good working knowledge of apertures and shutter speeds.
