2017 Fall PAL Portraiture Lighting class

Sponsored and hosted by the Pacific Art League

Offered: Sunday, Dec 3, 2017  |  9am – 4pm

The Pacific Art League is an august and revered Palo Alto art resource and I am honored to be working with them. Join me and the Pacific Art League for a one day portraiture lighting class! We will start with traditional studio lighting in my photo studio at 616 Ramona street, a two minute walk, three doors down from PAL. We will start in the studio with a demonstration of three point lighting. This is the foundation lighting tenet for regarding and assessing light on the human face. We will then work in groups and make photographs of real live people, while working the light.

After a break for lunch, we will repair to the Pacific Art League and environs to look at and work with Natural Light, applying and considering the principals of light direction, quality and color we learned in the morning.  This worlshop will improve your versatility and ability to see and craft a good solid portrait on the fly, in the spur of the moment. Yes, you can use your iPhone if you like, but the class will be more rewarding with a DSLR or some such camera, Bring your camera and a tripod!
