Last Friday, a group of talented and excited students joined our master trainer Ion Paciu for a Portrait Photography Workshop London at the Royal Festival Hall on London’s Southbank. A full day of photography and learning and the end result was incredible:
Our experienced tutor took several students through the foundational principles of Portrait Photography as well as discussing key subjects surrounding Portrait Photography such as concept and the different types of portrait styles a photographer can use.
The key focus of the day was to get the students behind the camera and photographing the fantastic model Jasmin (shown in the pictures in this article.) Throughout the day students are taken the process of creating the perfect Portrait photo through the Portrait Photography Workshop London by covering key principles such as:
- Utilising their camera’s core features to capture eye-catching portraits
- How to use aperture creatively
- Understanding hardware including cameras, lenses and lighting
- How to use natural light to create effective portraits
- Using their flashgun
- How to instruct and pose their model in different locations
- How to use accessories to create and direct light
- How to use white balance for colour correction
All in all a very hands on day with LOTS of learning! Check out some of the fantastic photos captured during Friday’s Portrait Photography Workshop:
The most exciting aspect of these days and having a group of passionate people who all share a skill, working together is the opportunity to discover new techniques, talents and of course places! Which is exactly what happened whilst the group were taking indoor and outdoor shots- they stumbled upon the Natwest Gift Factory (which is on the Royal Festival Terrace) and took some amazing art fashion shots with Jasmin.
Whether you are a beginner or looking to hone your existing skills, the Portrait Photography Workshop is a fantastic opportunity. You will learn to work effectively with contemporary urban photography! Check out the group below- they LOVED it!
