Families and Children Portrait Photography Courses
Our Families and Children Portrait Photography Courses is intended to help you to achieve better results when photographing people and families. We help you to capture your subject with their personality and individuality intact. Never work with children or animals, many long-suffering parents have to work with both at the same time.
We’ll look at informal and formal portraits, and how to get the best results in working with children and animals. Rachel’s first big commercial job was photographing children and toys for Fisher-Price Toys, and she has years of experience with people who don’t want to be photographed or those who want to be photographed too much! How do you take formal pictures that aren’t stale, or corporate pictures that aren’t boring? We’ll show you. We also have a tame dog that can be used for photography. We have lots of a photography tips and advice to help you in these situations.
You should do this photography course if you feel that your pictures of people don’t look like they should.
Ideally you’ll have a DSLR with a fast low f-stop lens and a separate flashgun but if your camera only has scene modes, this can still be a useful course – you will learn how to use the most appropriate modes and about composition. Compact cameras often struggle with portraits – they’re small sensors and restricted apertures mean that they can often fail to blur the background sufficiently resulting in confusing pictures. However, even these can get good results with care.
If you are not familiar with your camera, you may find our DSLR Photography Course more useful as this assumes less prior knowledge than this portrait photography course.
