Most of us pick up a camera for the first time because of our desire to capture memories of the people in our lives – babies, children, loved ones or even strangers that pass us by. How many times have you photographed someone only to discover later that in that moment you’ve missed the shot? There are a number of easy techniques that we can apply to help us successfully capture their likeness, their personality and their character.
This advanced photography course covers all you need to know to be able to capture people in their everyday surroundings – indoors or outdoors. Each week you walk away with practical knowledge that you can easily apply to everyday situations.
