PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
With Phil Gebhardt
Saturday, August 6, 2016

No one would mistake a passport photo for a portrait.  A passport photo merely provides a physical description of a person; a portrait reflects the character and personality of your subject. In this session, you’ll discover the basics for making great portraits of the people you know using the equipment you already have. Take home the secrets of the Old Masters who painted portraits that people still admire.  . Theory without practice won’t create portraits, so you’ll have the opportunity to put the basics into practice during the session.
