“The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
 
 
But how do we connect with people and make powerful and intimate portraits when we are isolated, maintaining a 6 feet separation, and wearing masks?

In this workshop, we will think out of the box, but also simultaneously we will look inward. We will learn to seek the beauty in the intimate, personal, familial and familiar moments of daily and domestic life. We will learn to make portraits within the confinement of home, but we will also discuss how to photograph people intimately despite separations and masks. We will discuss how we can each find a way to tell our personal story and make personal portraits of that unique moment in history that we are all experiencing differently. We will discuss all the elements of what makes a good portrait and delve into the process of working with people.

We learn to pay attention to detail, postures, expressions, use of the personal environment and the space, while working through the process and all of the details of creating a great portrait. We will discuss well-known artists, framing, environment, light, location, background, body language, expressions, the significance of the gaze, as well as the relationship of the photographer to the model throughout the entire process.

We will explore different aspects of portraiture: close-up portrait, environmental portrait, documentary portrait, collaborative portrait, self-portrait, group portrait, conceptual portrait, and more.

Through assignments, students will be encouraged to look at , explore different aspects of portraiture, to truly and intimately see their subject, and find their own voice in making a beautiful, powerful, and intimate portrait. We will also study the work of well-known artists for ideas and inspiration.

This course is strictly limited to 12 students
