Capture personality through a lens.
This workshop is designed for photographers who have an understanding of DSLR camera settings and can shoot on the manual mode. The workshop will help you develop an in depth knowledge and practice of outdoor Portrait Photography.
Our expert photographer Julien Borghino will lead the group through the streets of Edinburgh and teach hand by hand with a professional model how to capture personality, use effective lighting, and poses.
We will start the workshops with a brief Introduction where you will learn how to use the outdoor environment as well as the backgrounds to enhance the portrait by making an efficient use of lighting, flash and colours.
Once you are all set up, it is time to take your camera and start shooting!
