Indoor Portrait Photography - Factory Studios - 3 pm - 2 Hours
When photographing portraits indoors, we’re contained by four (or more) walls, and a ceiling – all of which block out light. Of course, this results in a darker environment where we have to work a little harder to obtain a correct exposure. We’re also somewhat conditioned to think that a beautiful picture needs a stunning natural location, however, you can capture fantastic images indoors also – it just takes a little practice. Let’s get into some of the problems that arise with shooting indoors, and find out how to overcome them.

We have a different photo theme fortnightly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Bournemouth. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from amateurs to professionals. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

Complete beginner? Please complete a Beginners Photography Class before attending a regular group session. This is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor. Scroll down for dates.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills. While much editing can be done on modern cameras, it's best to bring a tablet or laptop with editing software to get the most out of this session. Select this option when booking to attend.

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.
