Join the dynamic duo of Bobbi Lane and Lee Varis to explore the world of Hollywood glamour, and learn the photographic style of George Hurrell. Bobbi & Lee will teach you how to achieve the look of the classic Hollywood glamour images of the 1930’s & 40’s using modern lighting tools and digital retouching techniques.
George Hurrell spent the last 12 years of his life shooting in Bobbi’s studio, during which he experienced a revival of popularity for his classic style. You will be learning from her first-hand experience with George’s creative approach to lighting, styling, and posing! After hands-on shooting, Lee Varis will teach Lightroom and Photoshop retouching techniques that allow you to replicate Hurrell’s classic creamy B&W tones and smooth skin, without the hours of tedious re-illustration that George was famous for. In addition, we will have special guest, Richard Settle, George Hurrell’s personal photographic assistant for the last 10 years of his life. Richard will share his insights into George’s creative process at our Friday evening introduction. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to learn from the masters!
