My standard Photography Class package is about people and portraits. It includes 2 sessions, the first session outdoor using available light, the second indoor using studio flashlights.
There is a third optional session where we work at the computer using all the photos we took in the first two sessions.
I give you the choice of different locations, you may choose the one that you like most. Each location has different style and lighting. In different time of the day they provide unlimited creative solutions. In Beijing my favorite spots are: 798 (Dashanzi Art Center), Hou Hai, Ritan Park, Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven.
