In-Person Learning Class
Join photographer Greg Gorman in this hands-on, weekend workshop as he shares his portrait lighting techniques both in the studio and on location. Greg will discuss how he approaches people and how he analyzes a face, as well as his use of different camera angles, lens choices and background choices to create good images. He will also discuss and demonstrate how he works in natural light with reflectors, scrims,and artificial light. Students will have time to shoot, putting Greg’s techniques and their own into practice, followed by group critiques. Some Photoshop and processing will also be covered as it relates to portrait photography, but emphasis will be placed on the original capture.
Friday evening’s session and Saturday’s studio shoot will be held at the Los Angles Center of Photography. Sunday’s shoot will be on location at a private residence, TBD.
This course is strictly limited to 12 students.
Greg Gorman (www.gormanphotography.com) work documents that peculiar obsession of the 20th century celebrity. Each shot, a testament to the individual character, gives a picture of human nature in its infinite range. For me a photograph is most successful when it doesn’t answer all the questions, says Gorman, and it leaves something to be desired. For over three decades, Greg Gorman has continued to master the art of photography. From personality portraits and advertising campaigns to magazine layouts and fine art work, Greg has developed and showcased a discriminating and unique style in his profession.
