What Can I Expect

Get snapping on this online portrait photography course! Made up of 18 modules presented via online videos, this series of online training sessions will teach you everything you need to know about taking stunning portrait photos.

With just a simple DSLR camera or even a decent smartphone camera, you can create stunning portrait photos. It's essentially the study of people and you, as the one behind the camera,  can learn how to bring the best out of the person or people you're taking pictures of.

The joy of these courses is that all lessons are pre-recorded and available online, so you can dip in and out when time allows. They're engaging, entertaining and easy to follow. So even if you never even used a camera before, you will be shown all the basics, progressing quickly to portrait techniques and tricks.

Lighting is key to a good portrait picture. After looking at the basics of camera settings, a fair amount of time is dedicated to how you light your subject.  It's thoroughly fascinating to get an insight into the differences that various lighting techniques can make to your photo.

Then there's the background - and props. This online photography course runs through how the setting for your portrait is really important. After all, not everyone wants that sterile, no-smile, plain white background passport photo-style portrait do they! Whether in a studio or outside, you can compose really good images with the clever use of backgrounds.

Later modules on this extensive online portrait course look at the subjects of your photo sessions. Portraits can be candid or formal, so it might be stunning solo shots, taking photos of the whole family looking relaxed, capturing children as they grow up, pics of beloved pets, close up wildlife pictures, or cute couple portraits.

By the end of this online portrait photography course you'll have an excellent understanding of how to take the best people pictures, including commercial headshots, model work and family pictures too.
