COURSE DESCRIPTION

From its very beginnings, photography has been involved with portraiture. The capturing of the human form on the new medium available was just a continuation of an impulse to represent ourselves that goes back to the dawn of visual art.

Photography today brings the portrait to us all, with an immediacy that has never before existed. Portraits remain the story of a face—and how well a story is told often relies on how it is illuminated. To that end, learning to light the face with control and imagination is the goal of the this workshop. Over the course of this two-day workshop, students will explore a variety of studio lighting methods, styles, and techniques on live models, to discover what stories a face can tell.

REQUIREMENTS: Students must have their own digital SLR camera with manual capabilities. They are encouraged to bring their electronic flash, tripod, and laptops if those components are part of their gear. If students bring a film SLR camera then they are responsible for their own film and processing. 

PREREQUISITE: Foundations I, Film Bootcamp or its equivalent.
