Start your journey in Portrait Photography by learning to work with available, natural light with our online, self-paced course delivered through accessible and comprehensive video tutorials.

Enrol now, get immediate access and work toward collecting Compentency Badges to add to your LinkedIn profile.

 

A portrait is a picture or likeness of a person, the photographic portrait is made in a fraction of a second and represents a moment of connection between the photographer and sitter.

A carefully crafted portrait is the result of a deliberate collaboration between the photographer, who constructs the image through the thoughtful use of camera light to create a rendition that is complimentary to their subject and evokes their character, and the sitter who presents themselves to the camera in a way that they would like to be represented.

Using light effectively is a critical aspect of crafting a portrait. In this online, self-paced course delivered through accessible and comprehensive video tutorials, we will explore working with different types of light in a variety of environments, including indoor and outdoor available light, working with speedlights, and completely controlled studio environments.

Each environment presents a range of opportunities and challenges for the photographer to consider in deciding how to use the light in their interpretation of the sitter’s character. In managing these lighting situations the unique features of each sitter, and the mood the photographer intends to create, will guide their approach to using the light.

Learn how to

  • Perceive Portrait Photography as an artform
  • Effectively plan for successfully Portrait Photography shoots
  • Gauge what lenses are required for which scenarios
  • Work with and direct your subjects and make them feel comfortable
  • Apply some of the core portrait compositions, styling techniques, and poses

Intro to Portrait Photography | Online, Self-Paced Course

Start your journey in Portrait Photography by learning to work with available, natural light with our online, self-paced course delivered through accessible and comprehensive video tutorials.

Enrol now, get immediate access and work toward collecting Compentency Badges to add to your LinkedIn profile.

 

A portrait is a picture or likeness of a person, the photographic portrait is made in a fraction of a second and represents a moment of connection between the photographer and sitter.

A carefully crafted portrait is the result of a deliberate collaboration between the photographer, who constructs the image through the thoughtful use of camera light to create a rendition that is complimentary to their subject and evokes their character, and the sitter who presents themselves to the camera in a way that they would like to be represented.

Using light effectively is a critical aspect of crafting a portrait. In this online, self-paced course delivered through accessible and comprehensive video tutorials, we will explore working with different types of light in a variety of environments, including indoor and outdoor available light, working with speedlights, and completely controlled studio environments.

Each environment presents a range of opportunities and challenges for the photographer to consider in deciding how to use the light in their interpretation of the sitter’s character. In managing these lighting situations the unique features of each sitter, and the mood the photographer intends to create, will guide their approach to using the light.

Learn how to

  • Perceive Portrait Photography as an artform
  • Effectively plan for successfully Portrait Photography shoots
  • Gauge what lenses are required for which scenarios
  • Work with and direct your subjects and make them feel comfortable
  • Apply some of the core portrait compositions, styling techniques, and poses
  • Work with available light: both indoor and outdoor
  • Work with controlled light: i.e. Speedlight / Flash
