Introduction to Fashion and Beauty Photography
Introduction to Fashion and Beauty Photography course is a full day course aimed at amateur and intermediate level photographers who want to make their first steps in fashion studio lighting and beauty photography.
It is a great opportunity to enhance your fashion photography and lighting skills, under the guidance of an experienced tutor Jon Gray FBIPP.
This is a practical, hands-on workshop where you will work on a one-to-one basis with a model, with a tutor on hand to assist you and provide guidance to create great images.
The lighting techniques you will learn will enable you to capture stunning magazine quality images for commercial and editorial use.
At the end of the day not only you will gain confidence for shooting in a studio environment and will feel more comfortable directing models, but you will also walk away with some great images for your portfolio.
Brilliant fashion photography course. Went through a range of lighting setups from classic beauty shots to more dramatic Hollywood styles, had loads of opportunities to work one-2-one with the model under the supervision of the tutor.
I found the course yesterday really enjoyable and instructive. There was a lot of information to remember, but the large amount of hands-on shooting with the various lighting setups certainly helped to solidify and consolidate the nuances of each scenario. Regards.
