Night Portraits: Your Opportunity to Create Unique Images of People After Dark
Night Portraits: Your Opportunity to Create Unique Images of People After Dark https://www.skillshare.com/classes/Night-Portraits-Your-Opportunity-to-Create-Unique-Images-of-People-After-Dark/1798690086 Many Photographers are unsure about shooting at night, particularly portrait shots. This is a real shame because shooting portraits at night can be fun, creative and highly addictive. You just need a few helpful hints to be able to produce photographs that will amaze your audience.
I love shooting at night because the possibilities are endless. I can record a period in time rather than an instant as we do with daytime images. By using the various light sources available at night and knowing how to control them I can simplify my compositions which puts much more emphasis on my subject.
Because few photographers venture out at night, your images will appear a little different to the mainstream photography we see.
I’ve been shooting at night for many years and I’m still amazed at unique images possible. Every time I go out after dark I trial a new technique that allows me to build on my skills and my repertoire.
There are a few things that the night portraitist needs to have in place to increase their chances of success:
Have a plan in mind
Take some kind of camera support (such as a tripod).
Think about what lighting you may be using.
Organise a subject to shoot and talk to them about the results you want to achieve.
In this class I will teach you how to control all aspects of your night portraits.
You will see well over one hundred examples of my night images.
You will also see twelve live night time model shoots so you can see the way I control the lighting, environment, subject and compositions.
After you have done this class you will be armed with the skills to tackle similar shots to those you see here. I’m sure that you will love this class.
