About This Class

In these short and sweet series of “Travel Photography for Beginners” classes I will talk about light, composition, making portraits and some other helpful tips you may find quite useful. I decided to break these topics into separate classes so it will be easier to digest.

This is the third class of the series and here I will talk about how to make quick portraits on the go

  • How to crop your image?
  • What kind of details are worth watching out for?
  • How to make a candid portrait and why?
  • How to ask to get your picture taken in a way you want it to be? 

So, press enroll button and lets talk about travel portraits!

Don't forget to check out previous classes in the series to get better understanding of Light and composition:

2) Travel Photography for Beginners: Let’s Talk About Composition!

Prefer traveling light with your phone camera instead of bulky DLSR?

Mariya shares her skills in ways a beginner can easily digest. I am already enrolled in the other class! :)
I highly recommend taking the four-class series. Together, these courses will give you an excellent background to taking memorable travel pictures with good light, compelling composition and interesting people. The final course is a summary of using the essential tools in Lightroom – very useful especially if you decide to shoot in RAW format. The presentation is pleasant, easy to understand and uses very appropriate visual samples to illustrate the instruction.
