Please bring along your DSLR camera for this class. Tripods are optional.
Images of people are a celebration of life. We photograph our loved ones and interesting strangers in the street. Great portraits don’t just show a person’s face they can show their personality, their mood and they have the ability to captivate the onlooker’s attention.
To create such a portrait the photographer has to understand how to technically use light, composition and the camera. Yet there is a lot more to it. The photographer has to interact with the subject and guide them to capture their personality. This often does not come naturally, but it can be learned. We will talk about light , camera settings and poses. Then we will discuss ‘the vanity factor’ and the feelings the subject may experience while being photographed. These two factors alone can make all the difference between a great or ‘not quite right’ portrait.
Sandra was born in Germany but has spent many years living abroad including in Australia and Singapore. She was a veterinarian for 20 years, however motherhood required part time work where she discovered a passion and ability for photography she never realized she had. Her main focus is still her two boys! Her personal passion is animal photography, yet she also truly enjoys all other genres of photography especially family portraiture and travel photography. She offers professional photography services, photography workshops and outings for beginners and she sells prints of lovely Singapore scenes. Having taught in different fields for many years she hopes to pass on her passion for photography to as many DSLR owners as possible.
