About This Group

The aim of this group is to teach photographers about the use of light, types of light, posing, hands, camera angle etc. to make effective portraiture. This is about deliberate portrait photography and not snapshots – whether it be single, couples or groups.
Our aim is to pass on years of experience to those who want to know how to do portraiture more effectively.
