Skill Level Beginner
From clamshell to wraparound and more, we've covered a lot. My goal was to share with you a variety of techniques that can help you tell your portrait subject's story. Experiment with the techniques I've shown here and be on a lookout for those unexpected surprises that yield unique results. As we saw in this course, sometimes the most interesting portraits come when you experiment with your lights and with your subject. I'm Natalie Fobes, and thanks for watching!
