Portrait photography workshop – flash and natural light

People are one of the most common subjects to photograph. We can photograph people in a lot of different ways – documentary style, we can create art or fashion photos, business or lifestyle portraits or just everyday family pictures. Each genre has a different purpose which drives the creative process behind taking the photograph.


This will be a practical 2-day workshop where you will learn trough a mixture of demonstration, instruction and practical shooting the skills required to photograph people well.

The first day will begin with a bit of theory before we start photographing with external flash. We will use off camera flash, reflectors and various flash modifiers. The second day will be about photographing people using natural light or a mixture of flash and natural light.
