Kelso Camera Club Talk – Portrait Photography
I know this is a few months late (my talk was in march), this post will be moved into date order in a couple of weeks.
What types of photography do you like and why?? (please share your answers in the comments section below)
Many of my subjects (models) come from word of mouth, or from websites such as modelmayhem.com, purestorm.com and even gumtree.
The big turning point in my portrait photography can be summed up in this simple one line quote:
– David A. Ziser
This is the difference between a flat shot and a great shot.
Next we were on to a live demonstration with my model for the evening, showing the the three classic lighting techniques, Full, 2/3rds, and portrait and the four classic lighting patterns, Butterfly, Loop, Rembrandt and split. (there is far to much detail on each of these techniques to discuss here, I plan to add them into my blog at some point, meantime if you are really keen google the ones you are interested in and you will find loads of information on them).
