  • This is a five-session class that specializes in a small student-to-instructor ratio to provide personalized instruction leading to thorough understanding of portrait lighting, posing and the application of makeup.  Learn how to diffuse and bounce light with reflectors, umbrellas, soft boxes and the difference of hard edge and raw light.  Learn posing techniques that will enhance and flatter your subject and increase sales from clients.  Some lighting styles include the use of beauty dish, background lights, hair lights, Rembrandt, butterfly, single lighting, rim lighting and back lighting to achieve that high glamour look.  This class directs the student toward photographing the high school senior or your friends, family and loved ones.  How often have you wished you could take portraits like the pros do?  Photographs can earn you money!  Don’t envy others.  Learn these techniques so that others envy your photos.  Students will photograph four different professional models.  During one session, a professional make-up artist will demonstrate her talents.  Students are expected to have mastered basic shutter speeds, f/stops, reading a histogram and composition techniques before enrolling in this class.
