During our Introduction to Sensual Portrait Photography workshop we will coach the participants in a number of subjects so that participants will be able to plan their own shootings that will result in making aesthetic portraits using natural available light. 


We talk in-depth about a large number of important subjects you should consider when planning your first model photoshoot. We want you to create beautiful Portrait images. Learning how to find natural available light suitable for portrait images and how to find the correct exposure for your creative purpose. You will also learn the principles of posing that apply in every situation (rather than learning individual poses) and how to find, communicate and work with a model. We will teach through short lectures and hands-on practice so that you will leave inspired with enriched knowledge and beautiful portrait images at the end of the workshop.



All day shooting day. After Fridays discussions we are ready to start implement all those discussion points into shooting practice all day on Saturday. For this we will have 2 different models. We will create aesthetic sensual portraits of the model in different situations, using natural available light. Each photographer will have more than enough time to make photographs. 



We may have a new location and/or another model. In the morning, we will shoot in a different location. After lunch, we will have a look at your images and make a selection of your best work.
