Project Description

Show us a photo of a couple or family, using some of the ideas shown in the course

This project is about showing us a great family photo, a couple (i.e partners / husband/ wife etc...) or family small or large. Let's see you pose and maybe mention how you might have posed them before seeing this course.

Although this course is about posing, try to get some nice light on your subjects with an uncluttered background, preferable slightly lout of focus.
