Instructor

In this workshop we will discuss all aspects of creating a poignant, meaningful portrait series, including the importance of communication skills, the psychology of dealing with people, design continuity of your work, and the element of trust within the artistic exchange. In working within the structure of a ?theme related? body of work, an artist not only gains deeper insight into his or her subject matter but also learns more about him/herself as a producing artist.

This course stresses the importance of developing a conscientious work ethic and challenging yourself on a regular basis to produce new bodies of work within specific periods of time. With 25 years of commercial and fine art photography experience, instructor Ken Merfeld will offer careful guidance for class participants as they develop an outline for creative organization, execution, and completion of their personal projects. Lighting and “technique” applied to subject matter is emphasized, analyzed, and fine-tuned. Print quality and presentation of work is also addressed. All students will choose and produce a personal portrait series with a minimum of six images. These projects will be discussed and critiqued during class, defining a course of action to continue and/or apply to other subject matter for future portfolio enhancement.

This workshop is open to beginning and intermediate levels of photographers interested in going beyond the surface level of portraiture. Project prints are due each class session. The final class session will be held at Ken Merfeld’s studio in Culver City. Please bring portrait and people-related portfolios to the first class meeting.
