Portrait photography course in Essex

How to take stunning portraits on location – photography

Portrait photography course on location in Essex   Earlier this year we ran one of our location portrait photography courses at the stunning Ingatestone Hall. It was a great opportunity for our delegates to develop and practice their skills which they could then take away and use just for fun or if starting out on a new photographic career.   During the course of the day the delegates were introduced to a wide range of skills including shooting with natural light, dealing with low light and also using flash. The results were pretty amazing as you can see below.           All of the course attendees were new to taking portraits on location which provides unique challenges to the photographer.

Kent portrait photography course

Kent Portrait Photography Course – Maidstone

Kent Portrait Photography Course – Maidstone   On Saturday some of our delegates had the fortune to spend the day with the brilliant Martin Higgs and learn how to take stunning studio based images on our Portrait photography course run in maidstone, Kent. On the day the delegates worked with professional model Kate using a range of lighting setups. Some really great work by martin and the guys.   Working with a professional model like Kate is a great way of being able to focus upon the lighting whilst she works on the posing.  Ultimately you need to work on both however when starting out it is comforting to work with professional models who can provide an additional insight.     All of the delegates…

Taking outdoor portraits

How to take great portraits outside (on location)

How do I take photographs of people outside? Being able to take a lovely portrait image outside is always rewarding but for many people they can never quite get it right.  More often than not your subject ends up either squinting, becoming a bit too dark or one side of their face becomes overly bright whilst the other is clothed in darkness.   It is a strange fact that the majority of people I ask know one rule of photography and yet that rule is wrong – try it yourself, heres the question. “When taking a photograph of a person outside where do I as the photographer want to stand relative to the subject and the sun?”   90% of the delegates who come onto…

Taking great portraits – what could be better – Portrait photography

I consider being asked to take a portrait a great honour and also a great responsibility as I have to capture a moment in time and that is a one off opportunity. Having said that I also enjoy portrait photography as many as any other branch and I also love sharing that experience with others. During the course of the year we run a large number of portrait photography courses at Unshaken – these are both studio and lifestyle courses at some great locations including Chelmsford, Maidstone, Cambridge and St Albans. It is always a wonderful moment when a delegate starts to capture portraits beyond their expectations – it becomes nearly addictive and very often the hardest part of the day is reining in their…
