Class No 7: The Portrait
Sometimes, the simplest photos are the hardest ones to take. How do you make an impeccable portrait of a loved-one or of a friend on the spot, and with only the help of natural lighting? Basically, how do you manage without the studio and all its controllability, and end up satisfied with an expressive and successful portrait?
It is essential to take the environment into consideration when composing a portrait. Managing the background's colors and graphics, choosing the point of view, directing the model - these are all points that will be covered during the course.
Light control is an equally important aspect: in particular, analyzing a given moment's light and using it wisely are elements that will be explained to help you make a successful portrait.
This workshop will teach you:
- How to observe the environment so as to guide your esthetic choices: point of view, directing a model
- How to "read" light and place your subject accordingly
- How to correctly define parameters in your camera according to your desired result
- How to frame and compose an image to highlight the subject
The workshop includes a theoretical explanation, a main "practical" part, as well as a class debriefing at the end. The class takes place outdoors and the debriefing takes place at a coffee shop. The exact meeting place will be communicated to enrolled participants. The workshop is composed of a theoretical part, practical training and a debriefing.
