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. This course is limited to 10 students.

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

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.
