Portrait Photography Tips with Bella West FBIPP FRPS

or copy the link

Environmental Portrait Photography is one of the most satisfying ways to capture amazing images of people. By environmental we mean shooting outside on location with available light. Bella West is one of my favourite photographers as well as a personal friend and she’s a master with available light portraiture. She rarely uses flash, is great at posing people and often introduces a graphic element into her photography. In this video I take a step back and become Bella’s photo assistant and lend a hand by holding a reflector for her as she shoots some amazing portraits of her daughters. A reflector is really handy with available light portraiture because you can add a sparkle to someone’s eyes and just lift the light a little. If you’d like to know more about photographic reflectors and using them when shooting portraits please come and learn all about them for free at www.photographycourses.biz

Hey there, do you know “photo SFX art” (search on Google for it)? On their website you will find a nice free video showing the right way to take incredible photos. It made it possible for Joe to make pictures which have a jaw-dropping-effect when you take a look at them. It may help you also.

I hate cheap varnish, no that’s a little over the top, what Bella has in talent lacks in human relationships and respect.
