    基礎往往都是創作者的內在根源之處,基礎越是穩健,能夠創作的空間亦相對較闊。基礎等於簡單嗎?對於Muse 來說,基礎絕非簡單的東西,很多的時候我反而都需要用上更多的時間回去了解最基礎的原理或思維概念才能突破每次的瓶頸,所以二十年來,我了解一切都源自基礎。此課程跟過往實體課不一樣的地方便是Muse 將會在影片中為大家在不同課題的拍攝示範中講解得更詳盡關於人像攝影的佈光原理及思維概念,以便學員不時重溫內容,加深基礎的人像拍攝概念。

在Muse Chan Fundamentals of Portrait 網上課程,大家將會學習到人像攝影的基礎知識概念以及技巧等等,包括: 
  • 相機攝影基本概念
  • 光圈快門ISO 曝光概念
  • 鏡頭焦段同主體距離既景深分別
  • 基礎壓光概念
  • 基礎了解平方反比定律
  • 小閃燈運用 - 輸出與焦段

      For a creative, or precisely, a photographer, the ingenious inspiration always starts from and stems from the skill foundation. The more solid the foundation is, the broader the space for creation is. If you equate basic with simpilcity, you might be wrong. For Muse, the basics are by no means anything simple or prosaic. Muse holds that, on many occasions, we sometimes need to take a step back to the pristine basics, to grasp the most basic principles and thinking concepts so as to break through the bottlenecks each time as we encounter them.

        The past two decades of experience tell Muse that every creative idea derives from the very basics. This online course is different from the previous physical courses in that Muse will explain the lighting principles and thinking conceptsof portrait photography in more detail, walking students through the photographying process via filming videos. The demo content touches on a wide range of topics, which can be reviewed anytime for students to deepen their basic concept ofportrait shooting and ultimately master the skillset.

In the Muse Chan Fundamentals of Portrait online course, everyone will learn the basic concepts and techniques of portrait photography, including:
  • Basic Concepts of Camera Photography
  • Aperture shutter ISO exposure concept
  • The focal length of the lens is different from the subject distance and the depth of field
  • Basic calendering concept
  • Basic understanding of the inverse square law
  • Use of small flash-output and focal length
