Programme Synopsis Natural light can bring about the most beautiful portrait images in photography and it is source of light for student-photographers to adapt in order to hone their skills. The students will first be introduced to qualities of natural light through observation skills and experimentation with different tools to alter the quality of light. The guided shoot follows where the students can experiment with different lighting scenarios and harness the tools and techniques imparted to them. Resourcefulness is one of the values the workshop aims to impart to students. How can we use whatever that we have available to create the most impactful image? Students will get acquainted with how artists use portrait photography to support participation in community engagement practices.
