Hunt’s Portrait Workshop: Portraits with Natural Light (and Flash!)

May 8, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Featuring portraits in natural light & flash!

Recommended prerequisite: Working knowledge of your camera
We also recommend having some of the knowledge from our Beginner Photography class

All Skill Levels Welcome

Instructors: Don Toothaker & Paul Nelson

Class Size: Maximum 10 attendees

Join Hunt’s Photo Education for another entry in our series of portrait workshops where we will be working in natural light and mixing it up with flash! We will emphasize creating portraits using available light through subject placement and composition through the aid of diffusers and reflectors. We will then separately demonstrate reasons to add in flash.

We will begin photographing mid-day in the sunlight (and shade) and work to sunset. We will then utilize lower light techniques and photograph during twilight for some spectacular portrait results!

For this workshop, you are welcome to bring your own flashes and light modifiers (soft boxes, etc), but you also can use what we have with us as well. Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend.

For our meeting location, we have chosen downtown Haverhill, Massachusetts. With a variety of brick buildings and urban environments, downtown Haverhill (or any downtown area) can offer a wonderful variety of shooting environments. This workshop will help emphasize those capabilities.
