The Evocative Portrait (presentation by Gregory Heisler) - Filled, Sorry

Regrettably, this event is sold out (even though it's free). You can take your chances gaining admission at the door if you happen to be in the area and hope to get lucky.

Sorry...hope to see you next time.

I know that many of you are interested in portrait photography. So, I think you would really enjoy this presentation, courtesy of Cannon and CPINE (Creative Imaging Professionals of New England).

Complete details here:

Photographing people with a sense of intention. Deliberateness. Purpose. This is what separates the casual or candid portrait from the evocative portrait.

In this stimulating presentation, Gregory Heisler will inspire you to change gears: to think more about “why” than “how” as you create your images. He will explain his philosophy and methodology of photographing people, balancing a conscious process of decision-making with the intuitive, unpredictable shifts that inevitably occur during the making of a portrait. But his choices are always in response to specific subjects, circumstances, and clients

    A World-class photographer presented his work (covers of Time, Life, GQ, and others) along with interesting background stories, with emphasis on the "why" rather than the "how" of the image. Lighting was mentioned as a strategy (to emulate the desired natural light) with only minor details of the actual setup. He pointed out that he had to rehearse everything (with stand-ins) in preparation for most shoots. It also gave me some food for thought on where when conceptualizing an evocative portrait (even if I don't shoot famous figures with a budget from Time magazine). See his work at: The Museum also had most interesting exhibit "through the looking glass". See:

    Just checked - indeed, it's full. Bummer.
    If you live nearby, you might want to try getting in without reservation - could get lucky.
