Portrait / Flash / Studio Photography
Full Day Course

Our Portrait / Flash Photography Course offers an introduction to the fundamental elements of portrait photography with an emphasis on the importance of light and how to control it: natural light, flash and studio lighting.

After this full day course, you will be able to take much more beautiful photos of your loved ones, using affordable flash equipment indoors and natural light outdoors.

But what is portraiture? A simple document taken in a photo booth? Yes. An elaborate set up in a studio? Yes. A lucky shot of an old man or a cute kid reading a book on the floor? Yes. It is all of this and much much more. Therefore, some of the course will focus on what portraiture actually is. Why and how we choose to shoot particular subjects.

The course will discuss what a photographic portrait actually is as well as exploring the different ways in which we can use studio lighting and photographic equipment to achieve the results that we want.

The course will go ahead with min 4 and max 6 attendees, to guarantee personalized attention and efficient use of the studio.

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Using natural light and flashes for lighting portraits
  • How to make traditional ‘Beauty” portraits
  • Using a single light to set up and shoot in different studio lighting scenarios, including setups such as: Rembrandt, Loop, Butterfly, Broad and Split lighting.
  • Develop practical understanding of typical lighting set ups, from one light to four light scenarios, including the concepts of “key” light, fill, rim and background lighting.
  • Learn different ways of posing and positioning the subject, including head shots and full length shots, and the principles of: Profile, Three quarter, Direct and Seven eighths head positions.
  • Explore how we can shoot successful portraits using natural light, including such considerations as depth of field, lens choice and posing outside of a studio environment.
  • Using modifiers like umbrellas and softboxes and knowing which you want to use
  • Understand how different focal lengths can totally alter the nature, expression and, ultimately, even the intention behind a photographic portrait.
  • Creating your own reality with lighting
