Portrait Workshop

Eleven members went along to the National Waterways Museum in Ellemsere Port on Saturday 8 June for a Portrait Workshop led by Manchester photographer Sam Chaloner.

We spent some time examining some of “The Greats” of portrait photography over the years, and learning about what motivated them, before getting into the practical tutorial on how to achieve good quality portraits.

Sam had brought along two professional models who very kindly and patiently allowed us to practice our new skills, in the mini-studio he had set up as well as using natural light in the museum. Since it was raining, we were limited to working indoors which nevertheless allowed plenty of scope for interpretation.

Word has it that the models were convincingly upstaged by one of our very own. We will let you judge for yourself.
