Past workshop in 2021



 Who is this workshop for?

It is for photographers who know how to use manual mode and want to upgrade their skills. You don’t have to be professional, you don’t have to be in portrait photography field. 

You don’t have to have an advanced full frame sensor camera, any camera with manual mode will do. I actually started with a crop sensor camera and kit lens. For learning it doesn’t matter what equipment you have. Even a kit lens is ok. You can create nice images even with a cheap camera and lens if you have sufficient and correct lighting and great ideas.

So, if you are interested in portrait photography, this workshop is for you.

First day we will cover:

  • How to find inspiration for a creative photoshoot and how to organise it

  • How to work with light

  • How to direct the model and what poses are the best

  • You will practice shooting with model and take away great pictures to add to your portfolio

  • Overall that would take us 3-3.5h.

Second day we will cover:

  • Editing in LightRoom/Camera Raw

  • Photoshop - skin clean up, frequency separation, dodge and burn

  • Liquify tool to correct any imperfections or shapes

  • Additional tools to add artistic look to the image

  • That will last for half a day.

For both days of the workshop you will receive a print copy of the theoretical part with all necessary information.

If you would like to find out more information please contact me.
