Natural-Light Portraiture with Digital Cameras
Photography Spring One-Week Session 2:
April 9 – 15, 2017
This portraiture workshop will increase students’ skill in working with people—how to approach people to gain permission to photograph them, and how to work with and guide subjects to get the photo you are after—and cover the techniques needed for making a compelling image. We’ll also explore previsualization of the image, and how to be technically prepared to make that picture. We’ll cover finding good light, bounce lighting, composition, camera settings, color balance, and digital printing. Intermediate/advanced: students should have working knowledge of Photoshop and Lightroom and the operation of a DSLR camera including manual mode. Code S02P
