In this session, you’ll discover the basics for making great portraits of the people you know using the equipment you already have. Take home the secrets of the Old Masters who painted portraits that people still admire.  . Theory without practice won’t create portraits, so you’ll have the opportunity to put the basics into practice during the session.
