How to position your subject indoors and outdoors for the best lighting Posing ideas for women, men, teens and younger children How to choose the right camera settings for more attractive, professional-looking portraits The best types of lenses for portrait photography (for DSLR users) Background ideas How to edit your portraits in Adobe Lightroom


Go from boring snapshots to amazing family portraits. Your kids will LOVE to pose for you when they see your photos. After taking my photography course, your kids and perhaps even their friends will be begging you to take their portraits too! This course will show you how to use the available light, without special lighting set-ups, to take amazing portraits of your kids. Outdoors, you'll learn where to position your subject and yourself in relation to the sun for the best lighting. You'll also get tips on taking indoor portraits without using your flash. You'll learn a basic formula for your camera settings that will help you take better portraits. You'll also get a general understanding of exposure and how aperture, shutter speed and ISO work together. What you won't get is a lot of super technical stuff. This is a non-technical photography course designed to get you up and going quickly. It's created for parents and others who want to go beyond taking ordinary snapshots and learn how to take better portraits and family photos without a lot of equipment. We've all taken those photos where the background looks great but your subject's face is so dark you can barely recognize them, or maybe you want to know how pros get the background to look all blurry in portraits. Many people are intimidated by using their DSLR or compact camera's manual settings and just don't know where to start. That Auto Mode is so tempting and easy. But getting out of the Auto Mode will open the door to more creative, professional looking photos of your kids. BONUS: You can go a step further and watch over my shoulder as I import and edit photos in Adobe

Who is this course for?
