Photography, Insightful Portraiture with Joe Standart

Description:

If five photographers photograph the same person, you will have 5 different approaches. What is your approach? Creating a portrait utilizes the photographer’s vision, technical and logistical skills as well as drawing on one’s sense of empathy and personal insights. A portrait offers insights into what the subject is all about, and in a rather revealing way, it offers insights into what the photographer is all about as well. This course will expose each participant to various techniques and technical approaches to portraiture in an effort to reveal and strengthen the student’s personal style and artistic sensibilities.

The course will begin with a brief introduction to artificial (strobe) lighting as a means of exploring the emotional impact of lighting and then evolve into the use of natural light and the infinite possibilities it allows. An emphasis is given to a very simple working process, the use of available light, and the photographer’s awareness of his or her surroundings. Practical considerations will be discussed such as what is the photographer’s intent, the subject’s expectations, and where or how the photography will be presented. The course will include a brief introduction to the use of Lightroom and portraiture.

Preferred Course Equipment:

· 35mm DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera with lens or Mirrorless Compact camera with manual function option. Participant must be conversant with his/her camera.

· Laptop computer with Adobe Creative Cloud Applications (Photoshop & Lightroom)

· USB Flash Drive 512MB minimum capacity

· Tripod

· Cable release
