‘Speedlight School – Portrait Photography’ Workshop.
A head-shot to an environmental portrait, from friends and family to the bride and groom. Business people to that person who simply has ‘character’.
Portrait shooting is truly an art in itself. Enjoyably challenging, fun and very rewarding once you have the skills to realise your options.
An ideal follow-on from John’s ‘Flashes Of Inspiration’ workshop, or for those who have mastered the basics of Speedlite operation on and off camera, this course goes further into this fascinating subject. Using the indispensable tool of portable flash. The day is ideal for the enthusiast to the pro photographer shooting subjects of any age and gender.
This workshop provides real-world solutions to achieve consistently rewarding portraits and logical routes to get you there.
