Lighting Dramatic Portraits
with David Robin
March 24 - March 28, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

David’s knowledge and willingness to share with students was outstanding! Past participant, Lighting Dramatic Portraits

Portraitists, whether painters or photographers, are always confronted with the challenge of creating evocative and meaningful images of their subjects. In this workshop, David aims to decode this mystery and explore techniques to help participants develop their own unique voice and style.

Portraiture is a collaboration between photographer and subject, requiring skills beyond the technical. After examining the work of some of the master photographers in the genre, we explore simplified methods of working with subjects, including using light and setting to “speak” with our images. Through studio and location demonstrations, discussions, guest speakers, and assignments, participants learn how to visualize each portrait and how to create the appropriate environment and lighting to convey mood and emotion. David explains and demonstrates his techniques for achieving meaningful portraits, covering the gamut of editorial, beauty, advertising, and journalism. Participants leave Santa Fe with a refreshed, more clearly defined personal vision and the ability to achieve tangible photographic results.
