"Portrait Photography", is a 4 week, in studio, digital photography course providing an in-depth look at portraiture and studio photography. This course is for anyone at any photography level. Etheard's hands-on approach will help students learn how to work with a live subject, in a professional studio setting, creating exceptional images. Students will also explore various camera settings, angles, lighting techniques, using reflectors along with various color backdrops.
