Portrait Photography

Do you want to learn how to make better portraits? Do you practise photography, but want to perfect your skills? Join our photography workshop for CJP members (18 - 30 years).

About the workshop

To get inspired, you examine and discuss the work of professional photographers. After this, we start photographing ourselves. You will improve your photos with immediate feedback from our knowledgeable museum teachers.

The workshop starts with an active tour of the museum during which you will become familiar with the principles and visual elements of photography. During the workshop, you and your fellow students take each other's portraits, with a focus on making conscious choices before pressing the shutter. As you shoot, the experienced museum teacher will give you tips on how to improve your photos. At the end of the workshop, all results will be reviewed and discussed in the group.
