DPC PORTRAIT WORKSHOPS

PortraitWorkshop2022

Following the relaxation of government regulations around covid, the club was able to restart in-house meet-ups, and this was done in style with two portrait workshops. These workshops were particularly important to help newer members put into practice their learning over the past two years as well as reconnecting older friendships. Over the course of the workshops we had six models with well over 25 photographers in different groups over the two days. Participants were shown how to ‘read’ light for natural light sessions and then how to apply the same techniques with studio strobes. Models were styled in various outfits while photographers learnt how to pose them. This was open to all club members with thanks going to the committee for organising.
