POWERFUL PORTRAITS – An intense course on HOW to achieve them – Every time
Kelly and Kalina Schneider
Course Number: 25
Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Our intense yet fun and exciting program is focused on effective use of the core portrait photographer’s “toolbox” (Camera, Lens, Light, Props, Posing, etc) that consistently results in powerful portraits.
The hands-on shooting and location events are core elements of this intense yet fun class and we will use all types of light (Natural, Available, Reflected, Florescent, LED, Strobe) and practice how to blend light and subject to gain the most impact.
Students will be tasked with “class challenges” and be assigned to “Shooting teams” and perform specific timed but achievable actions to create an image based on a set of requirements (like Dutch Masters, Victorian, Etc).
Students will act as “primary” and “Assist” roles and be responsible with model direction, lighting, scene development. We will shoot Editorial, Environmental Portraiture, Glamour/Beauty shots and Boudoir/Intimate portraiture during the class and at various locations (TBD).
This is an active class and direct student involvement, and participation is key! We will finish the week events with a full day of step-by-step post processing training using Adobe LR and PS where the students will edit images and compete in a final class image competition with prizes!
