This part is aimed at beginner photographers and those who would like a refresher. The technical instruction refers mostly to traditional cameras, but all the principles apply equally to smart phone photography. Participants will learn how to shoot better portraits. The basics of compositions in portraits and basic lighting, including some flash will be covered.
