What you will do

2 hour workshop

Daytime

On this workshop, you'll learn how to shoot posed portraits.

I'll show you how to interact with your subject to get them comfortable to give you the 'look' you're after or get them to work with you so you can figure out what that 'look' is as you shoot.

You'll learn how to use natural light & artificial light to light your portraits & I'll show you how light placement can have a dramatically different effect on the mood of your portrait depending how you use it & where you place it

We'll be using a couple of LED lights & reflectors to demonstrate different 'looks' & I'll also show you a few of my favourite setups using combinations of natural & artificial light sources.

You will be taking lots of photographs during this workshop & will have lots of examples in your camera to use as reference points for your own future portrait shoots including photographs of each lighting setup so you can easily re-create specific 'looks' that you liked.

Looking forward to seeing you on the Portrait Workshop at Old Spitalfields Market!

Portrait Photography Workshop at Old Spitalfields Market by Dan Harley Photography - photography in London

About your host, Dan Harley Photography

Dan Harley is a Sony nominated Photographer & Videographer who has worked predominantly in the areas of Fashion, Backstage, Portrait & Music.

Dan has shot hundreds of shows from some of the biggest Fashion Week runways around the world, both backstage & front of house, where the pressure is on to make the shot for the client.

During this time he also started producing his own Fashion Series called 'Live Fashion Official' which Graduate Fashion Week described earlier this year as "...the world's most exciting Fashion Show"

Dan began adding teaching to his schedule back in 2014 on request from a friend who had taken on too many bookings for her own teaching business & quickly realised the satisfaction he derived from helping his students get to their creative 'A-Haaa' moment.

Dan's teaching goal is always to empower his students to be able to make their own creative adjustments in camera so they can get the shots they want rather than what the camera gives them - He has put together a unique series of simple, real world analogies to simplify the often confusingly taught aspects of photography

The good news is that it's a lot easier than you might think as the principles of image making are the same whether you are shooting Fendi ft Karl Lagerfeld at Milan Fashion Week or taking candid shots at Old Spitalfields Market

Dan is looking forward to helping you get to your own 'A-Haa' moment at the iconic, Old Spitalfields Market

Notes

You should be able to shoot in full Manual Mode (M) to really get the most out of this course - If you're not comfortable shooting in full 'Manual Mode' I would recommend taking my more general 'Digital Photography Workshop at Old Spitalfields Market' before taking this Portrait Workshop You should wrap up very warmly (including gloves) as the temperature is starting to drop & although we'll be inside the market we will only be moving to change location within the market...better to be warm & remove a few layers than cold & unable to concentrate (i say this only from experience at the Market since we started workshops there in summer 2018) Make sure you have a fully charged battery & a memory card with enough space for lots of shots (i know this sounds obvious, but it's very easy to forget the card or battery, especially if you were charging the battery or transferring files the night before) Other than that, i look forward to seeing you on the Portrait Workshop!
