Portraiture Workshop – Sat 13th March – 9am start

DeMolay House tomorrow – 9am Start

Bring; camera, speed light (flash) if you have one, spare batteries, lunch and a drink (you can also buy from Parkhouse if needed).

Pen and paper would be handy too, if you want to take notes.

Note well: the best focal length for portraiture is anything above 50mm, wider lenses will stretch your subject and produce poor results.

Please consider focal lengths from 50-100mm.For those who booked – See you tomorrow!
