Description:
In this course we will explore the creative, conceptual, and technical
differences between the documentary portrait and the outdoor commercial
portrait. We will compare and contrast the varied visual and technical
appearances of both genres of portraiture and embark upon individual
portrait projects after the lecture, discussions, and technical
demonstrations. Explorations will include the documentary portrait and
various conceptual and stylistic approaches from the past and present in
the history of photography. We will then examine attributes of the outdoor
commercial portrait approach currently popular (such as the senior
portrait, environmental portrait, wedding/bridal portrait genre). Various
equipment needs will be discussed. Bring your camera on Saturday Shooting & Demo. day ready to shoot in the afternoon!
