Janusz Kawa: The Compelling Portrait Workshop

Saturday, October 7, 2017
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Fee: $175 + $8.25 registration fee

Shooting a compelling portrait requires attuned directive and collaborative skills by the photographer.  This course is for students who want to improve their ability to capture a compelling, unique and psychological portrait, through their personal point-of-view. In the market, there are different demands. For example, to shoot an actress vs. a corporate headshot requires different approaches.  Often with limited time and an unforeseen location setting, developing the skills to capture real emotion and expression from the subject is essential.  Not every lighting set-up works for every individual person; this course will explore how to “sculpt with light” or accentuate bone structure.  Finding the appropriate light for the sitter can be the difference in creating a flattering and defining portrait. We will explore different lighting techniques for portraiture, The techniques of lighting with strobes, tungsten, and fluorescent  lights  will be covered. We will examine how to create different visual impact through our choice of lenses and selective focus and subjects relationship to the environment.
