Natural Light Film Portraits for Beginners

Learn the basics of shooting film in this three week progressive class! 

Learn how to capture exceptional portraits outdoors with master photographer Jeff Sass. This class focuses on portraiture technique with film. Take turns being the subject and the shooter- so everyone gets a chance to experience a portrait session from the point of view of the photographer and the model.  NO photography or film experience is necessary to take this class.
