In this workshop you’ll explore the fundamentals of portraiture and learn techniques to communicate your ideas. You’ll explore the variables of natural light and how to achieve a variety of styles and looks.
A powerful portrait can challenge and enlighten. Whether you’re taking portraits of family and friends, for business or for exhibition, it’s important to understand the tools and qualities that make portraiture compelling and memorable.
We look at decision-making processes and the technical aspects of composition and lighting. We examine white balance and how use contrast to create mood and atmosphere. We explore bouncing and diffusing light and how to shoot portraits in outdoor situations.
Working with a model is a great way to learn how to pose and communicate with your subject. We give you opportunities to gain confidence in directing and realising your creative ideas, using Sydney’s urban landscape as our backdrop.
