Portrait Photography

Portrait Photography Training.

Never make assumptions - Join The Myth Busters Club for free!

Sunday 11 Nov, we had a fantastic workshop on Portraiture with Paul Robinson. His explanations were clear and simple, and his demonstrations were effective and practical. Everyone had a good time and learnt in a fun environment. The day would not have been so successful if we had not had such wonderful models who were so patient and understanding. They gave up their time freely on a day of other commitments. We are indebted to them all . We also need to thank those who provided the morning tea and lunch.It was very much appreciated and we did justice to the offerings.

For those who didn't come, one day you will believe me that we have such a good time and learn at the same time.

We dispelled some assumptions;
1 you don't need artificial lighting to take good portraits.
2 you don't need a tripod.
3.You don't need an S.L.R. with fancy lenses and filters.
4. You don't need to know a lot about your camera.Auto everything will do the job.

You can't get much simpler than that!

For those who did attend : Alan C. Alan S. Ann Anstey Alister Sedgeley Ian Wallace Judy Hoffmann Joy and John Clayton Andrea Whitaker and Marlee  and Kim Wyllie

As a token of our appreciation of the support of the models, we propose to give each of them a certificate of appreciation and a photo from the day, mounted and framed.

Would all attending members send to Kim at their best photo of each model. At this stage it doesn't have to be full size. Kim will select "The Best of the Best" of each model and then request  a full size version of those photos to be emailed to her for printing.

Sat 17 and Sun 18.November
