Today we want to talk about some of the different portrait photography courses and workshops that we run at Photoion Photography School. Not all portrait photography courses are created equal, and each course that we offer is tailored to a specific kind of lighting. So let’s take a look at the courses and what you can achieve with them.

You’ll learn a variety of tips and tricks for making the most of the studio lighting including lighting modifiers / shapers available to you, and how to use them in effective ways to make even more interesting images.
