Photo Assignment: Natural Light Portraits is an interactive video course, where participating photographers can have their work reviewed. Professional shooter Derrick Story shows how to capture beautiful, illuminated portraits with natural daylight, and shares tricks for how to get fantastic shots even when the light is not so great. Derrick teaches how to work with photo disc light modifiers to bounce in light to areas that need it. He also explains how to use shade, when it's available, for a completely different look. At the end of the course, Derrick describes how to upload photos to Flickr for review and comment.

Well, now that you have all these great techniques swimming around in your head, I want you to go out in the field and try them. Grab someone, go take their picture using all these Natural Light Portrait techniques that we have done out in the sun and the shade. Once you do that, and once you have some shots that you think are good examples of these techniques, then we have a place for you to share them with everyone else. Right here we have created a new Flickr public group called the Natural Light Portrait Photo Assignment public group. You can go directly to it.
Just write down this URL right here: flickr.com/groups/naturallightportrait. It will bring you right to this page. Right here. Now, to join the group and to be able to start posting photos, just click on the Join This Group link right here. If you are not logged in to Flickr, all you have to do is enter your login information. If you are not a member of Flickr yet, you can join. They have a link for you right here. And you can sign-up. It takes about ten minutes to sign up. Now if you have any questions about Flickr: signing up, setting your preferences, all those wonderful things that come with Flickr membership, then guess what, we have a training for you.
You are not surprised, are you? We have a Flickr Essential Training done by yours truly here, so you know you are going to have a good time. You can get all of your questions answered, and then come back to this URL right here: flickr.com/groups/naturallightportrait. Join the group and post up to ten photos a week. I am going to be hanging out here. I will comment on some photos, and as more people participate in this photo assignment, they will be commenting on photos too. We have lots more to learn and we can learn from each other.
So I hope you get out there, take some shots, share them on this Flickr public group here, and let's have a great time with our photography.
