Taking portraits in natural light can produce beautiful results, but sometimes nature doesn’t cooperate to give you quite the light that you need. The art of natural light portrait shooting, is to learn to see how the light falls, position your subject to best use the light or shape the light to suit your purposes.
There are various techniques which can be used to help nature to light your subjects better. This workshop will give you skills to help you identify good locations for portraits, teach you how to position your subject to look their best and how to make great portraits when the conditions are difficult.
The workshop is timed to have practical shooting during "difficult" shooting times as well as the golden hour before sunset. With a small group, there is plenty of hands-on learning, practical shooting and individual attention. This is a must-do workshop for any budding wedding/portrait photographer or anyone who wants to take better photos of their family.
