Students will learn the basics of portraiture in the areas of camera settings, lens choices, natural and artificial lighting, composition, posing, and working with subjects. Topics such as using the histogram and a gray card are also covered with a brief Lightroom Demo showing how to use the gray card to correct white balance. Content is taught through both a lecture and hands-on practice approach. Comprehensive notes are distributed to set students up for continued success at home. Participants would need to have access to their own DSLR or mirrorless cameras.
