workshop at the National Portrait Gallery

Have tried a few times to book for a workshop in portrait photography at the National Portrait Gallery but its' always been booked up. Today, I receive notification of another such workshop and rang to book; already, one day was fully booked but there were two places on the second day. However, the booking office were too busy to take my call! Managed to get a ticket however by phoning another number. The brief is ...

Taking inspiration from portraits in the Gallery’s Collection, photographer Emily Harris will lead this one day workshop exploring lighting used in traditional photographic portraiture influenced from Camera Obscura. The workshop will look at art from Sir Thomas Lawrence to Steve McQueen and use digital photography to produce beautifully lit portraits.

It'll be good to spend a day like this at what is perhaps the foremost portrait photography gallery in the country even for photography! A combination of both theory and practice seems appropriate.
