Inspired by his recent exhibition, Soldiery - which featured 278 portraits of British Army soldiers - Rory Lewis leads this course focused on developing your skills in portrait photography.
Rory's fun and practical learning techniques and use of professional models will help you hone your skills and add to your photography portfolio. Aimed at both amateur and more experienced photographers, the course will cover studio flash lighting, the effect of soft boxes, umbrellas, snoots and reflectors.
