Portrait Photography: Natural Light

Dublin, California

Discover how to make amazing portraits using natural, available light. Learn hands-on from master Robert Silver while you photograph a professional live model!


If you want to produce pictures that capture the true personality of your subject in natural lighting conditions then this class is a must-take! In this hands-on event we use only available light along with various reflectors and backgrounds - we also discuss ways to pose your subject to create professional-quality portraits of them.


What You’ll Learn

  • How to manipulate natural light using reflectors, diffusers, modifiers and other tools

  • Effective tips to pose and work with a model / subject

  • Explore various backgrounds to create different and unique looks

  • How to create professional-looking portfolio pieces

The class is broken up into two distinct parts:


First we provide you with in-depth instruction on how to photograph available-light portraits.


Then you'll have an opportunity to apply your new knowledge while taking photos of a professional model. A model-release form will be provided so you can use the images to help build your portfolio.
