At the start of this new year, I am attempting to do some portrait photography work. I attended two training workshops in the autumn, learning how to use lights and work with models. Theory and workshop tasks are all helpful, but trying it yourself is a bit more daunting.
Thankfully my daughter Sarah agreed to be my practice model for a couple of sessions whilst still on holiday. As she is an aspiring musical theatre and dance performer, it was hopefully helpful for her too.
We went to Trentham Gardens on a dull afternoon for outside portraits, then some time at our home with backdrops to give a more studio feel. We were both really happy with how they turned out. Here is a sample… thanks for looking 🙂
