Delve into the pleasures of creating portraits from your own perspective. Students in this course are exposed to cross-disciplinary mediums, such as drawing, music, and painting, in order to maximize their creative photographic portrait abilities. Often breaking the "how to" rules of classic portraiture, participants also learn the basic elements-finding character, location versus studio, lighting, the use of props, posing, makeup, gesture-and tackle the age-old dilemma of whether to use flattery as opposed to stark realism.

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.
