Listen to Don MacGrgor’s interview on “The Photo Tellers”.
The class will explore every aspect of environmental portraits with a serious look at the process of designing, creating and selling portraits.
We will use all the tools (natural light, reflectors and flash) to create images that have a three dimensional feeling. We will study composition to insure that the subjects not only stand out but lead the clients to invest in wall décor.
Each day will be split with a lecture and then hands on shooting while applying the technical skills of lighting and posing. We will spend a lot of time on posing individuals and more importantly family groups.
