Greater London, United Kingdom
Not just a day for perfecting your technical photography skills, but a day in which to consider the artistry behind truly great portraits, and how they are achieved. It's these two things combined that will help you to unleash your technical and creative ability, and find your own unique voice as a photographer.
Victoria and Albert Museum Tour and Portrait Photography Workshop 11:00
We’ll start the day at the steps of the Victoria & Albert Museum, then head inside to take in some of the photography on display, where we will consider the works on show and discuss elements such as lighting, composition, storytelling, mood, purpose, angles, primary and secondary subjects and exposure values.
With our heads full of creative inspiration, we will then take a stroll to our next location, all the while considering, discussing and practising the art of street photography. At a nearby café, we can refuel and sit down to consider some of the more technical aspects of portrait photography. We’ll explore some tips and tricks for using the light, composition, focussing, aperture, shutter speeds and ISO, and things like directing your subject and bringing the best out of them. Finally, we’ll take on some challenges to put to use the skills we've looked at.
