Creating Fine Art Portraits

1 day course / 10am - 5pm / Qr 1500 / 8 Places available


This one day course is dedicated to teaching you how to create fine art portraits for your portfolio. I will show you how to plan and execute a dramatic, eye-catching work of photographic art. Intended for motivated beginners and experienced pros alike, this course walks you through everything you need to know to create jaw-dropping fine art portraits and have them hanging on gallery walls in no time. You will need a camera and laptop with Photoshop pre-installed (CS3 onwards), Alien Skin Exposure software (demo version can be downloaded prior to the event) if you wish to take part in the photoshop editing section, or you can just watch the seminar.
