Portrait

3h30

Sometimes, the simplest photos are the hardest ones to take. How do you make an impeccable portrait of a loved-one or of a friend on the spot, and with only the help of natural lighting? Basically, how do you manage without a studio and all its controllability, and end up satisfied with an expressive and successful portrait?

It is essential to take the environment into consideration when composing a portrait. Managing the background's colors and graphics, choosing the point of view, directing the model - these are all points that will be covered during the course.

Light control is an equally important aspect; in particular, analyzing a given moment's light and using it wisely are elements that will be explained to help you make a successful portrait.

This workshop will teach you:

- How to observe the environment so as to guide your esthetic choices: point of view, directing a model

- How to "read" light and place your subject accordingly

- How to correctly define parameters in your camera according to your desired result

- How to frame and compose an image to highlight the subject

The workshop includes a theoretical explanation, a main "practical" part, as well as a class debriefing at the end. 

Pre-requisites for this workshop: Class No 1: Camera settings & Class No 2: Aperture and Depth of field
