About This Class

Great portrait photography starts with great light. But how do you find great light? How do you learn to notice it? And how do you place your subject to take advantage of it?

Join Master Photographer Paul Wilkinson behind-the-scenes in various locations around the City of Oxford, from beautiful medieval courtyards to office blocks and graffiti-strewn alleyways. Paul shares how the light makes each of these nine portrait locations special, and you'll see his camera settings as well as the unedited and final images.

Afterwards, use your new skills to create images that will help you start making a living from your photography - and don't forget to upload them so we can give feedback!
