Photograph from the heart
My literary editor Jenny Jensen (http://www.e-bookeditor.com)
Portraiture is story telling. Good story telling comes from the heart. This course is part self-exploration and part photographic technique. Using exercises with sound, smell, taste, touch and vision we tap those senses that will allow you to extract telling images from even the most uninspired subject.
This class is not for the meek. If your are willing to look in the mirror and do what it takes to find the personal stories, thoughts, images that lay dormant in your creative sphere, then each day’s photo assignment will reflect those individual gems.
We meld this approach to finding your personal style with technical material covering lighting, the symmetry of the human face, point of view, better awareness of settings, styling and props, format and style. We work on how to best illustrate emotions and explore methods for breaking down barriers between subject and photographer.
Students will keep a journal of each day’s experiences and revelations and from that material chose images to do daily. Watch how the mojo develops. Any and all props you bring are welcome. This is a class filled with possibility – join us!
