ABILITY LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE & ABOVE

CAMERA SUITABILITY: All Canon EOS cameras

LOCATIONS: Oxford (central), London (central)


Grab your gear as we head to the streets for some adhoc portraiture work. Learn how to incorporate your environment, interpret ambient light and utilise added light in order to showcase your subject.

Taking portraits on location is great fun, working with people and the environment around you, and provides an ideal opportunity to create great photos.

With a few simple techniques, and equipment that you can carry around, you will discover how to make creative and impactful shots in a range of locations.

On this experience day you will capture portraits of our model – who’ll be with the group all day – using the available light, and in some instances Speedlite flash. You’ll be adding context to your portraits by including the environment, and also using spaces en-route to serve as a background.

This is an intermediate level day, but one that’s more about the creation of the image than learning to use your camera, so you’ll need to be comfortable using aperture priority (Av) mode as a minimum and ideally manual (M) mode too. You’ll already need to know how to adjust ISO, white balance and apply exposure compensation.

By the end of the day, you’ll have the skills and awareness to head out and explore new locations, working with minimal equipment for maximum results, and be able to find opportunities in your environment to give your images edge.
