On this informative Sydney Portrait Photography course in Sydney you learn different styles of portraiture from candid to formal - from street to studio. We cover the quality and direction of the light, creative composition, different types of cameras suited for portraiture and the best lenses. We practice poses, backdrops, lens perspective, new ideas, angles and viewpoints to take great portraits.

Learn the 'tools of the trade' - what you need to know about camera gear and accessories for high quality, punchy portraiture. We cover studio lighting including mixing strobe, tungsten and available light and the golden rules of composition. Practical demonstrations train your eye, to ‘paint’ light onto a subject, how to select the right lens and use of aperture and shutter speed to control the creative process.
