The best portraits capture that magic moment in which the essence of character is revealed. Portrait photographers need good people skills in order to create a sense of intimacy and establish rapport with their subjects. In this course, students learn to balance social and technical skills so that they can engage with their subjects in a meaningful way and create compelling portraits. Demonstrations, using both professional and nonprofessional models, explore how various lighting techniques can achieve different psychological effects.

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.
