Course Description

When we photograph people, we encounter all the possibilities and challenges that arise when establishing relationships with strangers, friends, or loved ones. Portraiture requires the vigilance to notice and interpret gestures and expressions and the patience to wait for the moment in which the subject`s character is revealed. In this course, students photograph people in various locations—in the studio, in different environments, and on the street—in order to gain an understanding of the particular issues that arise in each situation. Topics include photographing with tungsten, strobe, and available light. Students review historical and contemporary examples of the portrait and self-portrait. All formats are welcome. prerequisite: Photo II or portfolio review
