Natural Light Portraits

Working with available, "natural" light, we'll learn how to take compelling portraits. Class topics will include finding great locations, understanding and working with available light, choosing the right background, simple posing techniques, composition, and choosing a lens and setting your camera. All cameras are suitable, as much of what we discuss is as relevant to your camera phone as it is to a DSLR.

Mostly, though, we'll be taking pictures - of each other, and finding out from experience what works and what doesn't. We’ll be shooting outside at Rose Hill Manor, with its beautiful fields, log cabin, barns, and so on. We’ll also be working inside with window light.

This class will be taught at Frederick Community College in Frederick, MD, and will be listed in the 2019 Fall Semester catalog. https://www.frederick.edu/
