Photos of the people in our lives are often among our most prized and meaningful possessions. Portrait photography is a true art that memorializes the essence of a person in a moment of time.
This portrait workshop is for any photographer wanting to learn how to capture stunning portraits of people of any age. Whether you are a parent wanting to take better pictures of your own family and friends, a photographer looking to start your own portrait photography business or if you simply want to learn some great skills for taking better portraits, this workshop is designed for you. You’ll learn how to take your basic DSLR skills and apply them to create beautiful and stylish natural light images. The techniques apply to any age subject and will help you become a more versatile photographer.
The workshop is a combination of lecture and hands-on shooting with live models of different ages. We will be shooting on location at Heritage Village in downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum, Trinity Groves or a similar location. We’ll discuss and demonstrate location and style options for creating a unique experience and final product for your subjects. You will walk away with new tricks and tools to create better portraits that reflect the unique personality of your subject.
You should already be familiar with your camera and comfortable shooting in Aperture Priority and Manual exposure modes, using single point focus mode and have a basic understanding of ISO, f-stops, depth of field, shutter speed and motion blur.
