Take the next step with your portrait photography and learn about how to best make use of natural light outdoors and to get creative with outdoor flash lighting. This mini-workshop is all about giving you an insight into how to make the best use of outdoor locations for portrait photography -- where to find the right light and how to create your outdoor light using flash lighting.

"Creative Outdoor Portraits" is for photographers who enjoy portrait photography and who are looking to get better at it -- especially when shooting on location outdoors. You'll learn the key techniques for shooting in natural light, including when you may need to use a reflector, or how to look for natural reflectors. Then, we'll ramp up the creativity dial and introduce location lighting in the form of flash lighting through battery powered lights. You'll learn how to create evocative location portraits by balancing ambient light with flash lighting, to nail those images that totally pop off the page or screen!

This is a hands-on workshop that will have you learning by doing, as you shoot and build images for inclusion in your portfolio.

  • Your interchangeable lens camera, battery (including a spare) and memory card/s.
  • Portrait length lenses eg. 24-70mm, 24-105mm, 70-200mm, 55-200mm, 50mm, 85mm, 90mm, 100mm and similar zoom or prime lenses. If you're not sure, feel free to contact us and ask.
  • Good walking shoes, water and sunscreen (this is a mostly outdoor event).

You don't need a tripod or flash for this mini-workshop. We will supply the flash lighting for this event.
