Photographing People, Telling Powerful Stories
Dates: Mondays, Sep 17–Oct 15, 2018
Time: 2–4pm (New York City time)
Limited enrollment: 10 students
Learn how to tell stories about people by photographing them in their own environment — their home, workplace or on the street in their neighborhood — and how to incorporate space that tells a story about the subject. We will discuss ways to make your subject feel comfortable and relaxed so that the images will illuminate their personality and feel more intimate. Students are encouraged to use available light, but basic lighting setups using portable LED lights will be discussed. A history of the environmental portrait as well as a selection of contemporary photographers will be presented.
