Studio Portrait Photography (Live Virtual Classroom)

Studio portraiture is a versatile genre of photography: images can be anything from bright, punchy, high-key images full of light and energy, to dark, intense images that draw the viewer to the subject’s eyes. And a whole lot in between!

This intensive 20-hour course will teach you the essentials of studio lighting, lighting direction and quality, working with different types of subjects and techniques in making professional studio portraiture.

The course is immersive, and participants should expect coursework that need to be accomplished outside of the sessions and presented during online sessions.
