Description

This hands-on portraiture course will help students learn to find and utilize the best natural light when shooting outdoor portraits. Class will meet at Kenmore Camera and relocate to City Hall Park just down the block. We will use a model to demonstrate various lighting environments. Students will then be responsible for setting up the lighting, composition and posing of their own image. Everyone will have many opportunities to shoot portraits during the course of the class.


Topics will include:


• Basic posing and composition

• White balance for color management

• When & how to use a reflector and diffuser

• Using open shade

• Backlighting your subject

• Fill flash vs reflectors

• Using polarizing filters

• Appropriate focal lengths for portraits


This class is open to all camera types and skill levels. Students should bring their cameras and lenses to class.
