People Photography with Confidence
Course Price: $179.00 U.S.

Photographing people with a long lens from afar is one thing; capturing those same subjects at closer distances is a whole new level of photographic expression filled with impact, emotion, and a whole lot more.

Fact is - many people behind the camera fear close encounters with strangers.  Shyness and fear of rejection are a part of it. Not knowing just how to handle the situation successfully 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, confident and powerful!

  • Work confidently and decisively with a 50mm to medium telephoto lens
  • Establish rapport when approaching strangers for a photograph
  • Make stunning impromptu and environmental portraits in all types of light
  • See people picture possibilities amid the crowd

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