Dates: October 26 - December 28, 2021

Meets: Tu from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM ET

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but it is also a highly creative and playful way to explore one's personal style through the guise of emulating others. We begin with a discussion and visual presentation of past and present portrait photographers of note. Then, each week, students are assigned a known portrait photographer and asked to shoot in their style. The course includes critiques, demonstrations on lighting and composition, and an exploration of what makes a provocative portrait. 

Course Level / Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes that are Open to All Skill Levels.

Note: Students must be able to prepare their digital image files for sharing each week.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
