This course covers basic portraiture techniques with minimal to no lighting. We explore different lighting styles, such as Rembrandt lighting, butterfly lighting, and different lighting ratios, as well as available light, outdoor light during the day and night, speed lights, and one light. Emphasis is placed on being resourceful under multiple lighting conditions and making beautiful portraits with very little equipment. Basic portraiture retouching is also covered. Students produce work outside of class and bring examples to the next class.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

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.
