How will the course run?

This is a 4 hours lesson given by a professional photographer in a photo studio that is divided into three stages:

1. Theoretical presentation. The photographer presents the photo studio equipment, its uses, presents the different types of lighting and how to use them. He/She will help you to choose a background and atmosphere depending on the desired imagery. He/She will advise you on how to interact with your model in order to create a successful set of images/portraits.

2. Shooting exercises : its your turn to shoot! After learning theory, it's time to put it into action! To fully understand portraiture you will take turns as both photographer and model. Depending on the weather and the wishes of the group, it will always be possible to shoot outdoors.

3. Analysing your photos : At the end of the course, you will be showing your best images and receiving analysis, feedback and valuable advice from the proffesional photographer.
