Portrait Photography: Natural Light 

Dublin, California 

Follow us on Facebook to stay informed about workshops like this one and more!

Discover how to make amazing portraits using natural, available light. Learn hands-on from master Robert Silver while you photograph a professional live model!

 

If you want to produce pictures that capture the true personality of your subject in natural lighting conditions then this class is a must-take! In this hands-on event we use only available light along with various reflectors and backgrounds - we also discuss ways to pose your subject to create professional-quality portraits of them.

 

What you’ll Learn

  • How to manipulate natural light using reflectors, diffusers, modifiers and other tools
  • Effective tips to pose and work with a model / subject
  • Explore various backgrounds to create different and unique looks
  • How to create professional-looking portfolio pieces

 

The class is broken up into two distinct parts:

 

First we provide you with in-depth instruction on how to photograph available-light portraits.

 

Then you'll have an opportunity to apply your new knowledge while taking photos of a professional model. A model-release form will be provided so you can use the images to help build your portfolio.

 

About your Instructor:

Robert Silver is an award-winning and published photographer. With years of commercial, fashion & portrait photography experience he has a wealth of information and charismatically informs those he teaches. Robert is a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). When not in his full-service commercial photo studio, or teaching, Robert can be found Mike's Camera in Dublin. Learn more about Robert and see his work: RobertSilverPhotography.com

 

Because of the hands-on nature of this class and the complexities of the subject matter it’s limited to 15 people.
