Basic Portraiture (People Photography)

Photography is all about people. As our children and loved ones grow, being able to capture and photograph those special moments becomes important. We will help you take better photos with simple, but tried and tested tips and techniques.

Photography is currently more popular than ever, professional equipment has become so much cheaper and more accessible, its not uncommon to see new parents with a semi-pro digital SLR. All cameras can take great photos, that’s never changed. What we can do is help you get the most out of your new hobby.

Children grow up fast, and its important to capture those precious moments – let us teach you some simple tricks that you can use at home while photographing your family.

A little knowledge goes a long way. Who knows – you may discover that you really enjoy taking photographs. One thing may lead to the next and before you know it you’ll be taking your children to the beach and wanting to shoot the sunset – we can help with that too.

What we cover

  • Basic camera settings and handling techniques for portrait photography.
  • Getting your subject to stand out (using DOF).
  • Capturing that smile, always being ready.
  • Simple tips you can use at home.

This workshop is aimed at parents and caregivers, and covers very basic skills. We also offer a more advanced portrait workshop, contact us for more details.

The skills you learn can be applied at home, the beach etc.

Remember: Photography is about people, and expression is everything.
