Hands-on Portrait Photography

Carl Caylor
Course Number: 7
Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Carl is one of the most sought after instructors in the country because of his “Hands-On” coaching approach. Carl will challenge you to become a better photographer than you already are. His photographic skills are just part of what will help each student. His greatest strength is his ability to see what skills others already posses and then break things down in simple terms to help enhance those skills to a new level.

Carl will share with you how to find usable portrait light in a natural environment.  You will learn to move a subject within this light to create a beautiful portrait.  You will also learn how and when to use flash as an assistant to natural light on location.  Artistic and physiological concepts will be addressed and practiced through the week.

This is a very “Hands-On” class.  You will be creating images each day that will be critiqued in class for the benefit of all.  The class outline is: Discuss, watch demonstrations, do on your own with assistance, discuss as a class, more demonstration, repeat.  You will go home using new, perfected skills that will elevate your quality in this business. You will also learn to properly finish a file for printing.  Carl will share digital darkroom work and custom printing techniques.
