    Join my event if you are interested, learn while you shoot, lighting, posing, communication, what to do with long face/round face, colour matching of clothes, etc.

    I used Sony F717 1 year ago, a good camera really.

    yes, i think all the newbies know too. but, i put this thread up so that any senior CSers who are pros at organising courses can let us know. i'm sure a lot of us are like me who are blur like sotong when taking good portrait shots. =)

    No worries there. Look at the thread headers out there that states "Newbie" or you can even pop in to one of the events stating you're a newbie and wish to join. I believe most will be glad to help.

    Perhaps the parties interested can call me you can choose to bring your own models (Kids/Pets/Family/Girl friend/Boy friend) or I'll arrange a model for you guys during the course.

    My mobile is 97858606

    I am sure you'll be more confident in shooting models/portraits after this session !

    If you wish to learn proper studio it would be advisable to attend courses organised by Safra, Objectifs and PSS. Why?
    These are a series of workshops that cover everything from basic lighting setups, shooting techniques and review sessions. Minus points are
    a)higher costs
    b)commitment of 3 to 4 hours per week for such lessons
    c)submission of portfolio at the end of the lessons for assessment
    This recourse is definitely not for the frail egos and most of the instructors are certified and experienced portrait photographers.

    The paid model shoots are essentially model shoots, you can definitely pick up tips and pointers from more experienced shooters but it is a far cry from attending a structured course. Plus points are you don have the "negative points of courses.

    best of luck...

    Default Brett's Studio

    Hi all,

    I had just had my individual training coached by Brett at his studio. I have to say that I learned quite a few things as he became very individual as to assess my lighting, shooting technique, directing of model and so on. He spent much time on each light and poses so that I do understand and able to setup my own lights. He encouraged me to talk and direct the models as what to do and how to communicate with her.

    I do highly recommend those who are very new to studio shoot to consider asking him to coach as he fits the "training" according to your needs.
