Portraiture Lighting Workshop
Offered: Saturday, Feb 17, April 21, 2018 | 9am – 5pm
Portraiture is a deliberate act of communion.
Join me, and an experienced model for a day of portrait photography in the studio as well as quirky and pastoral urban settings around downtown Palo Alto. Get to know a studio hot light from a strobe light and advanced techniques to make great images. We work in the studio and then in various locations in Palo Alto exploring the environmental portrait, photographing interesting people in interesting places.
This portraiture workshop is for people who are comfortable with their cameras in manual mode and want to move beyond the grip & grin, shoot & run practices we see in abundance everyday everywhere. There is a difference between taking pictures and making photographs. Learn better portraiture lighting, the shapes of the human face, and posing the body. We will do this in the studio and in natural light. Above all, learn how to work with your human subjects to get the best possible portrayals of their personalities and spirit. Portraiture is a deliberate act of communion.
This class, limited to six people, runs from 9am to 5pm with a lunch break. Treat yourself to a real day’s worth of photography!
