Portrait studio photography course  focuses on mastering the procedures that create a true creative portrait. Short  it is a free continuation of the Game with Light Course, but its completion is not a condition for those interested in this course. In contrast to the Game with Light course, we will focus not only on working with light, but on everything else that needs to be done to create a good photographic portrait.

In the morning part of the course, in addition to the general theory of portrait photography, determining the correct exposure, working with composition and working with lighting technology, we will learn about the possibilities of simple styling and more complex photography of people so that the photo content corresponds to our intention.

In the afternoon, we will briefly repeat the work with light during portraiture and we will focus not only on lighting, but also on stylizing the person being portrayed. We will show you how to work with a "white on white" and "black on black" scene. All participants will have the opportunity to style their model.
