Many photographers dream of creating a fine art image, but the reality can be somewhat different - an effortless-looking image often requires a lot of planning and preparation, not to mention perfect timing and great post-production. This photography course brings all these elements together and will inspire you with new creativity as you learn the many techniques that combine the subtle yet stunning and distinguished fine art look.
You’ll be guided by Aspire’s training team in exploring the very specific skills required to create captivating, mantelpiece-worthy portraits. Fine art photography is very different from the active, lifestyle-based portraiture you’ll create on the likes of our Little Rascals course. We will be working with older children who naturally respond well to direction. You’ll learn the subtleties of composition, of posing your client, of seeing your image with an artists eye; in theory it might seem contrived and even unnatural, but when you get it right, the results are stunning. You will learn the power of simple yet beautiful props that can make a world of difference when creating a professionally polished portrait. There will also be several models throughout the day ensuring that you leave with a beautiful range of images for your portfolio, with full model release to enable you to use these images in your marketing material, portfolio, website and blogs.
The Fine Art Portraits photography course also shows you the massive difference that post-production can make to your images. This isn’t about making changes for the sake of it - used correctly, post-production can turn a well-composed image into a true work of art that stands out from the competition, so it’s an essential part of the process.
You’ll leave this photography course with a wealth of fresh knowledge as well as the confidence and motivation to create ever more beautiful fine art photography. It’s time to discover a new dimension for your work, and a new profit stream for your business!
