Whether using digital or film cameras, this class will help everyone improve the quality of the portraits they are making. A great portrait (or any photograph) is created in that brief moment in time when the photographer, subject and light permit the creation of a great image. In this class we will demonstrate and discuss lighting and posing techniques used by professionals. Portrait styles, camera and lens selections will all be discussed. Lighting, one of the most important factors in creating beautiful portraits will be thoroughly explored. Location and studio lighting will be demonstrated. This workshop will help everyone focus on seeing and identifying the “decisive moment” when subject, light and photographer are one.
