We held another highly successful Portrait Photography Course on Saturday 23rd January at bangwallop studios. The course was designed around learning how to work with a model and the challenges of directing your subject to achieve the best results.
The group were given expert instruction on composition, lighting, expression and other basic tricks and pointers to make their portrait photography come alive!
Our morning session involved a group shoot on the beach with our beautiful model Kate, giving the students an opportunity to work one to one and also more reportage style shots. Quick trip back on the ferry for a well deserved lunch and then the guys got to grips with ’styling’ the model for the afternoon session in the studio, they all seemed to grasp their inner fashionista pretty quickly and had Kate accessorised and ready in no time. We ran through some basic studio flash lighting techniques and then each student got an opportunity to work with Kate to produce some fantastic studio based images. A quick instruction on Adobe Lightroom and critique and we were done! Phew!
They guys all got to select their favourite image from the day which was printed for them to take away. Here are a selection of the students images, let me know what you think, I think they did really well!
