Shooting portraits is one of the most challenging but rewarding subjects in photography, and in this workshop, you will discover the creative process behind setting up and executing portrait photos.
The focus of this workshop will be on exploring the creative process, with each step covered; from the development of a visual concept, to preparing and organising the shoot, to the final execution of it.
This class is strictly limited to only 6 participants to ensure a quality experience.
Topics covered include:
- Understanding Editorial Vision
- Connection with People
- Photographic Techniques
- Working with a production crew
- Resizing for Digital
- Preparing for Printer
Who should attend:
This workshop is open to anyone who is interested in portrait photography for personal or commercial use, especially University-level students studying photography or wanting to pursue a career in portrait or commercial photography.
This is not a basic photography workshop. All Leica Intermediate workshops require that you have a basic understanding of photography techniques and are familiar with your camera. Knowledge of basic printing and retouching concepts will be helpful to ensure that you get the most from the experience.
For those whom have never been formally trained in photography or a novice (only using automatic), we strongly suggest a pre-requisite workshop in Photography Fundamentals.
Date & Time:
To be updated.
Note: Participants are responsible in ensuring that you are available to attend the workshop on the selected date and time. No cancellation or refund is allowed upon sign up.
