2012 Workshop: Day 12

June 25th, 2012

We structure every class to make sure our students have an opportunity to make photographs. It’s important that a photographer who makes portraits knows what it feels like to be photographed. A little empathy for your subject goes a long way! It also gives a lot of insight for directing your subject.

Today, we made portraits of some of our students, but also walked them through a lighting set-up, explained some of the reasons to use off-camera flash, and gave them the chance to make a few images too. It was a brief overview, as none of our students are ready for an in-depth look. But they dug in, asked tons of questions, and were each eager to take their turns.

Below are some of our students’ portraits.
