Portraiture 101

How often have you heard someone say ?I?m not photogenic? or ?I don?t like myself in pictures?? It seems nearly everyone who has ever been in front the lens has said something similar? I know I have. So how do you respond to someone who says they?re just not photogenic? My answer is always the same? ?Don?t worry about that?. it?s my job as a photographer to MAKE you photogenic!?

Learn what it takes to make anyone from average Joe to super-model Jane look great in portraits! In this portrait workshop, we?ll build on the foundation of lighting concepts covered in Intro to Studio Lighting and cover a variety of lighting styles, posing techniques, wardrobe and background tips, lens choice, and a host of other technical and artistic considerations that go deeper into portrait making than my other workshops.

We'll be shooting with my camera tethered to a 24" imac running Apple Aperture 3 for instant feedback as we work through examples. If you wish to shoot with your own camera, please make sure you're set up to tether before you come into class.

My classes are very hands-on and conversational. I work hard to meet the level of everyone in the class so no one is bored and no one is left behind. If you have a question during the class, bring it up and we'll move in that direction... every class is unique, depending on the students.

This class builds upon a foundation of lighting concepts laid in my Intro to Studio Lighting class. If you've never used any lighting gear, you should at least familiarize yourself with some basic concepts of studio lighting. With so much information to cover on portraiture, I won't be able to provide much beginner lighting info and I recommend taking the Intro to Studio Lighting class first. For information about my other workshops, visit www.REDredphoto.com

Class size is limited to 8 to 10 people to allow for significant hands-on experience and individual attention. Please allow 3 to 4 hours for this class. Please pay in advance through PayPal. Your Yes RSVP will be ignored until payment has been received or you've made other arrangements with me directly. I'm sorry but there will be no refunds on no-shows or last-minute cancellations.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns or if you need help with directions.

I look forward to seeing you in class!
