This course will teach you the techniques needed to photograph dance in an engaging and interesting way and is perfect for those looking to combine their interest in dance with photography.

What will I learn on the Dance Photography Workshop?

The Wildlife Photography Course will follow these course topics:

  • Introduction to Dance Photography – an overview of the techniques we will be covering to give you a better idea of the best methods to capture great images.

  • Dance Photography in a Studio Environment and on Location – This is a hands-on workshop that will cover a studio work and work on location using studio lights, giving you greater control over lighting and composition. You will learn how to best light your subject using different methods.

  • Working with Dancers – To achieve the best images, you need to be able to work with your subject to capture them at their best. This workshop will give you tips on how to direct a subject so that they can help you achieve that perfect image. You’ll also learn how to listen to your subject and their needs.

  • Timing Your Shot – In something like dance, where the subject(s) are moving, timing your shot to get the best results is very important. We will teach you the skills to be able to anticipate and react to the “moment” when it arrives.

  • Focusing – With your subjects moving around the space so much, it can be difficult to focus on them properly. We will teach you how to get the best focus and depth of field, both to achieve crisp images, but also how to use motion blur.

What kind of results you can expect?

Is this course for me?

If you are passionate about both dance and photography and would like to combine those two passions, this workshop is perfect for you.

Photoion will be providing the studio space, lights, models, and props needed for this Dance Photography course.
However, you will need a digital SLR camera or a professional compact camera with full manual exposure. You will also need a good knowledge of how to use this equipment, including how to adjust things like shutter speed, aperture, use different camera lenses, and adjust ISO.

If you don’t currently own a camera of your own, you are welcome to use one of our spare DSLRs. If you require the use of one of our cameras, please notify us in advance so that we can make sure we have one available for you to use throughout the course.
