Create Artistic Black & White Portraits With Natural Light

CHF 597

9:00 - 17:00



Learn how to create sensual B&W portraits of women - and dramatic portraits of men, with only natural light - without a studio, and without any additional equipment.

This full-day training is for people who have already done my 1- or 2-day workshop "3 Steps To Stunning Portraits" - and want to advance their skills further to achieve more artistic results.

B&W portraits - if done well - are more classy, elegant and refined than colour.

If you have seen my Instagram portfolio, you probably noticed that about half of my posts are B&W images. And if you haven't, there are a few examples below.

Now I want to teach you how to take images like that.

You Will Learn:

  • How to create soft, sensual lighting for women and dramatic lighting for men

  • More advanced posing

  • Practice directing the model yourself

  • Refine your ability to manage & shape natural light

  • How to create mood

  • Manage light on face vs body

  • Shallow v deep depth of field
