Photography: The Portrait Project
What are the qualities that make a photographic portrait compelling and authentic? How do we capture that magical moment of perception between the photographer and the subject? Designed for those wishing to begin a new project or for those needing feedback on a current project, this course aims to help you to clarify your vision, integrate technical skills with intuitive spontaneity, and harness insight as you create compelling portraits. Simple, innovative techniques, from ambient to tungsten and on-camera flash techniques, are explored throughout the workshop. As a course participant, you will develop a photographic project or series of images inspired from a class assignment, an existing project, or a slide presentation of works by other artists. Through weekly lectures, critiques, and class discussions, you will learn to develop your own personal style of portraiture and begin your own portrait series.
