About this course

This one-day photography course has been planned to help you make better portrait photographs.

During the morning: we will discuss the principles involved in taking a good portrait, formal and informal. We will look at different types of suitable camera, lenses and other useful equipment and materials. Then we will examine aspects of lighting, especially studio lamps and flash, and the techniques of correct exposure. We will also have a look at the works of some famous photographers. In the afternoon after an early lunch we will carry out a portrait session using studio lights and flash, as well as a trip outdoors to the Centre's shrubbery - weather permitting! You need to be prepared to take photos yourself and act as a model for other members of the group to photograph.
