Portraits Unplugged

Although this class is called, Portraits Unplugged, it's a bit of a mis-nomer because all the students had been actively using their Canon or Nikon speedlights to get some great results.
Held at Sydney University's Callum Park campus in Rozelle, this two-day class is resulting in some very impressive work. Day one saw us schlepping through the pouring rain in search of decent and yet dry locations within the college grounds to shoot our three models. Techniques learned on the day mostly revolve around getting the right aperture direct for the depth of field required and keeping a beady eye on the background. Something that most casual photographers completely miss while snapping families or friends. Above: Two from Clare Hovey. Below: First two from Bonnie Humphries, second group of two are from Glenda Jennings, third group (two images) are from Geoffrey Du and the last two are from Michael Ho.
More to come once day two is completed...
