Portrait Photography Workshop by Saad Salloum aka skylinkd
I have designed this course for beginning photographers and for those who want to fill in any gaps in portrait photography knowledge.
You don't have to have any prior understanding of photography although it is certainly helpful.
I can't wait to share with you what I have learned in photography.
The Workshop will take place at HounaCenter Hamra and is focused on :

Posing/dealing with the model.
The Workshop is going to open your Insights & Inspiration

- Do I need a professional Digital or Analogue Camera to attend this Workshop?
It is not a must, but definitely much better if you can. You don’t need one for now, as we are going to share a camera that I will provide during the classes …
