You don’t have to travel the world to make powerful photographs. This workshop is designed for photographers interested in making portraits that engage on a deeper level. The most meaningful work comes from finding your own voice. We will focus on how to connect with our own personal questions to make portraits that matter to you and to your audience.
We will begin with a portfolio review of participant work and assess individual motivations, goals and interests. Through slide presentations we will look closely at the work of portrait photographers and investigate differences in style, method and intent. We will discuss our own photographs and what it takes to make an engaging portrait.
What You Should Bring
Five portraits from each of these categories in printed format:
• Someone you don’t know
• Someone you do know
• A group portrait or people in a relationship
The class fee includes a boxed lunch.
Public Lecture: Join us for the Artist Talk and Book Signing event with Lydia Panas on October 7 at 4:30 p.m.
