Portrait photography is all about getting the lighting right to convey the mood of an image whether it be light bright shot of a child at play, a couple in love or a darker more seductive portrait. Sydney is blessed with great locations and this workshop is set at one that has a diverse range of backdrops and locations to make your experience worthwhile. This workshop is all about learning the best way to achieve the effect that you want on a budget using a combination of your camera, a reflector and an external flash attached to the hot shoe of your camera to achieve both natural light and artificial light effects.During the workshop we move to different locations, look at the challenges that we face at each location and ways to control the light to achieve a desirable result. By the end of the workshop you will understand the fundamentals of portrait photography, selecting the right location and effective lighting on a budget.
During the workshop you will develop your knowledge of the more advance settings of your camera and flash like harnessing the power of the exposure scale, flash compensation, high speed sync and ETTL (electronic through the lens) metering, bouncing light and the list goes on.
