One of the challenges a portrait photographer faces when he stands behind the camera is to make the portrayed personality shine and be the focus of attention. Marta Mas Girones - known on Instagram as leentrelineas - achieves it from intimacy and closeness, with her own style that tries to explain the most honest truths of those who face the camera.

In this course you will learn how to experience Marta's photography and discover your style by generating a series of photographs. You will learn how a session works, from the initial contact with the models and their direction, to the choice of location, materials, light and postproduction.

You will start knowing Marta, where she comes from and how she got where she is. She will tell you what her biggest influences are, that is what she calls "incendiaries" because they have been the spark that ignites the fire of her creativity.

Before starting your session, Marta will teach you some tools to build a link with your model that will help you develop the concept of your photo shoot.

You will learn to choose a location depending on what you want to achieve, taking into account how light enters each space and every hour. You will see how to take advantage of a space that, a priori, does not seem attractive.

Marta will explain in detail the equipment she uses in each situation, starting with the camera and taking a tour of each of her objectives that vary depending on whether she portrays a person, groups or photos of events.

Now you will get to work. You will start your session working with natural light indoors, first seeing how to manage the natural light that a window offers. Marta will give you some tools to get the most out of it.

Then you will learn to manage an interior space, deciding which elements work within the plane and which to set aside so that the model and space have a balanced role.

You will discover some tools and everyday elements that you can use to obtain more artistic scenes, such as direct light or crystals. This will help you give a special touch to your photographs.

You will take your images to Lightroom, where you will learn some editing tips to give your images a professional finish and, finally, you will discover some ways to spread and teach your work to get new projects to work on.

You will generate your own series of photographic portraits looking for what makes you different and what only you and no one else can tell.

A course by Marta Mas Girones

TeacherPro
Portrait photographer

Marta Mas was born in Barcelona 24 years ago and, although her training is in philosophy, her love for photography has become a career. It has many types of clients, including actors and actresses, musicians, jewelry brands and theaters.

Marta manages to reach the intimacy of her characters through the portrait, by which she claims to look for "something in her way of looking, perhaps understanding them, anything more genuine than the shell with which we present ourselves to the world." With his style and ideas he seeks to claim a more human photograph that starts with care, since only from the hand that does not judge can the most honest truths be explained.
