Making Portraits Personal :: (Two day workshop. Max 8 students.) :: When you have learned all the rules of lighting and posing for portraiture, it is time to start breaking those rules.
I have spent years working on the technical side of the craft and now I am breaking out of my comfort zone. I have begun making portraits that matter to me personally far more than whatever technique was used to capture them. Working with ordinary subjects in ordinary locations, I am striving to make unordinary portraits.
This class is for the intermediate to advanced photographer who has a foundational understanding of exposure and lighting techniques. I will be working with you to break you out of your ordinary way of shooting portraits to create something more personal for you as a photographer. These aren’t photos for the subjects. These are photographs for you.
Day One :: 10am - 2pm - We will meet at my studio in Atlanta where I will discuss the importance of personal work, how I approach my own personal projects, and I will demonstrate lighting techniques that you might want to consider for the next day. We'll head to a local pub for lunch after we wrap up at the studio.
Day Two :: 8:30am - 6pm - For this class we will be working in a 113 year old house on the Decatur square in Atlanta, GA. I will separate you into small groups and give you a subject to work with. I will be on hand to assist, offer lighting advice, and give feedback as you shoot. Once class is done we will convene at my house for dinner and drinks.
Cost - $1,000
Limited to 8 students
Gear you will need to bring :: Bring whatever gear you want to this workshop. I will be supplying strobes, hot shoe flashes, triggers, hot lights, modifiers, stands, reflectors, and other misc. grip items.
