About this course

This course is about going beyond the traditional and taking your subjects out of their usual environment. At an iconic Venice bar Yervant uses warm artificial light to create the right mood. He balances the light when shooting at dusk and produces astonishing night time portraits of the couple using flash, modelling light and even streetlights. Yervant also shows you how to play with different lenses to include beautiful architecture in your portraits. And you’ll see the importance of preparing and setting up quickly in public places to grab opportunities when both time and light are limited.
