Take one of the most famous portraits of all time: Steve McCurry's Afghan Girl, shot for the cover of National Geographic in 1985 using only a 35mm camera and natural light.

In this illuminating Crash Course we'll help you to observe, visualize and control natural light, demonstrating how light and shadow, as well as different focal lengths, affect the dimensions of the human face. You'll get valuable practice photographing people and learn to put subjects at ease. Make vivid portraits a part of your everyday.
