Portraits can be one of the most rewarding disciplines in photography. A picture that captures the essence of a person is something that all photographers strive to achieve.
But where to start? The Lens? The Settings? The Composition? And then… there is the Lighting! Especially scary if that lighting is from a flash!
This class will help you take the fright out of portraits made with flashes. You will take a tour of your camera and find the settings that will help you make great portraits. You will learn about lens selection and composition. And finally, you will get exposed to the wonderful world of wireless flash portraits. You will learn the techniques and settings needed to turn that flash into a tool to create some wonderfully amazing light.
To finish everything off, you will help create a portrait… LIVE! You will get to walk through the thought process and trouble shoot while helping your instructor with an actual portrait shoot.
— Participants will need to bring their own NIKON camera and lens set-up ready to make images. Nikon will provide all the flashes necessary for this event and some cameras and lenses. Due to the technology used by other manufacturers, non-Nikon cameras will not function properly for this workshop.
We recommend the following camera series for this workshop: D7000, D500, D600, D700 and D800 series DSLR.
Lens recommendation: a moderate telephoto (80mm through 135mm) that will focus closer than about 5 feet. Nikkor Micro Lenses will be suitable for many of the stations. Other lenses may be used with varying degrees of results.
