Portrait Practice Session

Practice taking portaits together among fellow photographers!

Cost: Free!
  • Sun 19 Jul 2020
  • 14:30 to 17:00
  • Hofgarten
  • Hofgartenstraße 1
  • Munich


We will visit a number of different locations in and around Hofgarten and Englischer Garten with diverse backgrounds and lighting conditions, and learn from each other regarding framing, lighting, posing, and directing.

After a short introduction we will split into small groups, and everyone will take turn to be each other's model. Don't worry, we are all shy photographers to begin with––more happy to be behind the camera than in front of it. But because we know we are in it together to improve our skills, and everyone will go through the same process, these sessions almost always turn out to be filled with laugther and fun! And beside getting more experienced in taking portraits, you will get some new facebook profile pics of yourself as well :)

The focus is on natural lighting, but if you have reflectors or flashes, you are welcome to bring them along and experiment with them also!

Note that this is a chance for you to practice, and there will not be formal teaching. Consider searching for some portraits photos you like and try to mimic them on the day as a starting point!


  • We will have a photo review session on 06.09, do join us and share some of your photos :)!
