Online Learning Class via Zoom

This course investigates historical and contemporary fine art as well as editorial portraiture, with an emphasis on creating a sense of personal vision. The class addresses use of narrative, aesthetics and form, covering topics such as approaching subjects, establishing a rapport, and forming a collaboration between subject and photographer that is both intuitive and spontaneous.

The Interpretive Portrait will begin with Andrea sharing her work and discussing her creative practice, in addition to reviewing each participant’s work. An assignment will follow, due the following week.

The second session will include a critique of the previous week’s assignment. During this session, the class will also discuss topics relating to the use of portraits in publications and exhibitions, addressing logistical, legal and ethical issues. Participants will have done a reading in advance of this session and will take part of what is sure to be a lively discussion!

The third and final session will begin with individual reviews with Andrea in the morning, followed by a group meeting in the afternoon. The afternoon’s agenda is to be determined, structured by the needs of the group.

Though wonderful pictures will certainly be made during the course and students will add to their photographic vocabulary and “bag of tricks,” the emphasis of the class will be on the process, being in the moment while photographing. “I will always argue that the act of taking portraits in itself is the greatest reward.” – Andrea Modica

This class will meet for three intensive sessions on January 21, January 28 and February 4. On each of these days, the group will meet via Zoom from 10:30am until 4:30pm PST, with a break for lunch. The final session on February 4 will include private one-on-one sessions with each student.
