Posing individuals, couples, children and groups is a main focus of this Edmonton portrait photography class. You will learn how to guide your subject into classic and casual poses to suit the mood and background of the image. We will also discuss how and why to select certain locations for your photographs so that the photograph will convey the message that you or your subject want it to.
What good is a great pose and background if the people in the photograph are not well lit? In our portrait photography classes, you will learn and practise lighting techniques using natural light, window light, reflected light, subtractive light and flash photography.
