Portrait Photography Workshop

Explore the breadth of portrait photography in this six-session workshop

Capturing people’s personality in portrait photography settings can be a real challenge because there is a lot going on. You must engage with your subject, make them feel comfortable, remain aware of light, and consider your background, all at the same time!

If you’re looking to learn some new portrait photography tips, as well as how to achieve great lighting for photos of people, look no further than this portrait photography workshop, instructed by professional photographer and Image Flow owner Stuart Schwartz. During his 35-plus years working as a successful advertising photographer, he has been hired to take portraits of hundreds of people, both in the studio and on location.

This six-session in-person portrait photography workshop will start with a brief overview and discussion of the Master photographers who created the classic foundation of both formal and candid portraiture on which we continue to build. Using these Masters as inspiration, students will learn portrait photography techniques with strobe lights in a controlled studio setup, as well as how to modify natural light outdoors on location.

Schedule:

Wednesday, November 2, 4:00–6:00PM:  Introduction followed by print viewing and discussion. Outline of assignments for the duration of the workshop.

Wednesday, November 9, 4:00–6:00PM:  Lighting demo outdoors and with strobe in makeshift studio setting at The Image Flow.

Wednesday, November 16, 4:00–6:00PM:  Critique of first assignment — portraits shot in available light.

Wednesday, December 3 & 4,  Open Studio: Studio time to be reserved for individual photo shoots.

Wednesday, December 7, 4:00–6:00PM:  Critique of second assignment — studio portrait where showing a variety of emotions is the goal.

Wednesday, December 14, 4:00–6:00PM:  Critique of third assignment — shot on location, a portrait of someone with 3 additional images that help to tell a story about the individual.
