Sara Lando – Creative Portraiture

“It’s like taking passport photos if you’re a citizen of bonker town.”

1 day workshop

Workshop Starts: 14th October 2019, 10h00

Workshop Description:

Portrait photography is more than just the sum of technical skills we need to light a subject and make sure he or she fits nicely into the frame. It’s more than finding the right clothes and props, and retouching the skin so that’s flawless. If everything is perfect, but nothing is happening and the person sitting in front of our camera isn’t engaging… the image just falls flat. In this intense one day workshop we’ll talk about rules only to break them repeatedly. We will start with little exercises to test the waters and gain confidence. We will explore movement and blur, we will use traditional as well as unconventional lighting and we will use our cameras in ways that are not described in the manual they came with. Then we’ll start from coming up with a concept and we’ll build a picture one layer at the time, adapting and adjusting to what happens in front of us. For the whole time we will work towards building a connection with our subject, learning how to guide them and direct them.
