Online Learning Class via Zoom

This six-week workshop will begin to explore the world of portraiture, the basics of natural and artificial lighting, and the psychology of dealing with people in front of your camera. Lighting equipment and light-altering tools will be discussed and demonstrated, with weekly assignments given and critiqued, and student portfolios reviewed. Visual interpretation of subject matter is stressed as a creative approach to shooting people. Further emphasis will be on body language, interesting backgrounds and shooting environments, as well as paying attention to visual design, overall composition, and eye movement within the frame.

This workshop is open to beginning and intermediate levels with the goals of becoming more aware of light, gaining confidence with your subject, eliciting an emotional response from your viewers, and creating memorable images from your portrait sessions. Digital or film, black & white or color are accepted. Assignment prints are due each class session.

Please bring portfolios to the first class meeting.
