About This Class

In this course, you will learn how to capture better pictures by understanding the body language of your subjects. Understanding body language is important because it tells you how comfortable your subjects are with having you around.

If you don't see what people are saying to you with their body language, you are missing a big part of the picture.

Photography is about capturing memories. It's about capturing the emotional highlights of an event you are photographing.

You can't do that if people feel unsafe with having you taking their pictures.

To get the best shots, you need to earn the trust of your subjects and build a relationship, all non-verbally.

In this course, you'll learn how to do just that.

By implementing these new skills, you'll be able to walk into any room or event with your camera and build trust with your subjects quickly so that you can capture more high quality images.
