You’ll learn how to expose accurately, hone in on a single focal point and compose for maximum impact, to create beautiful window-light portraits.
The final module shows you how to shoot flattering portraits at home.
How Camera School works
Camera School is the free skills course for all photographers, created by the UK’s best-selling photography magazine, Practical Photography. Our aim is simple – to help you take your best ever photos. All you need to take part is a DSLR, mirrorless camera or creative compact, and a few spare hours a month.
The course consists of six modules, each of which will introduce you to a new subject and a new set of camera skills. The modules are published in Practical
Photography and will include jargon-free advice, simple step-by-steps and homework tasks. These homework tasks are where you put your new skills into practice. They’ll require you to get out and about and spend a bit of time refining your shots, and will challenge you just enough to keep things interesting.
Once you’ve completed your homework, you’ll need to upload your best image to the special homework gallery, where the Camera School team will mark it (gold, silver or bronze), offer feedback and send you a certificate.
