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. 

Prerequisite:  Open to All Skill Levels: Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes.

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