About This Class

This course will be centered on improving your portrait photography abilities to convey mood, feeling, and emotions. We will do this by exploring how to plan, shoot, and edit original portraits. 

By providing you with the tools, information, and tips you need to excel, you’ll learn how to plan, shoot, and edit your own creative portrait concept, including:

  • The basics of camera function
  • What it takes to find a good location to shoot
  • How to pick postures that convey the mood you want
  • Practical tips for shooting, including lighting, posing, and how to take candid photos
  • How to edit your images to enhance the vibe of your images

Materials: In this class you will need a phone camera or a DSLR camera and an image editing software. I’ll be using a canon 6d mark ii, an iPhone 12 and Adobe Lightroom to edit my images. 

After you have taken your portraits and they are ready to be delivered, post them in the project gallery so we can cheer each other on!.

Deliverables

  • Tell us about your shoot and subject
  • upload 1-3 photos from your shoot and share your major challenges while shooting.

The proper technique combined with an artist’s expression creates great portrait photography. Even though shooting portraits is far easier than painting, perfecting the art of capturing the emotions and expressions that characterize good portraiture can take some practice.

This course was designed for:

  • Beginner photographers with little to no experience in shooting portrait, but are interested in learning more about portrait photography
  • Intermediate photographers who want a deeper understanding of planning, shooting, and editing creative portrait concepts
  • Anyone who wants to improve their general knowledge of photography in order to capture beautiful portraits

Required Gear: The only equipment required is some sort of camera. This can be a smartphone (iPhone/Android) or a DSLR/mirrorless camera. Everything from taking your first photography class to editing and post-processing will be covered.

Required software: Although I’ll be using Adobe Lightroom, this is not required to follow along.
