People Photography
Course Price: $179.00 U.S.

Photographing people from across the street with a long lens is one thing; capturing those same subjects at closer distances is a whole new level of photographic expression that you'll come to enjoy in this online and interactive photography course.

Fact is - many people behind the camera fear close encounters of the "photographic kind."  Shyness and fear of rejection are a part of it. Not knowing just how to handle the situation once you're in it, is another. This online photography course taught by professional photographer, David Bathgate, aims to remove those obstacles - bringing close-in photography of people - total strangers included - well within your reach. The result is nothing short of creative, engaging and powerful!

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Work quickly and closely with mild wide-angle to medium telephoto lenses
  • Establish rapport and work with confidence when approaching strangers
  • Make stunning impromptu and environmental portraits in all types of light
  • See picture possibilities amid the crowd

What you will need:

  • Computer with photo-processing software (e.g. Lightroom or Photoshop)
