Environmental Portraiture: In Real Time
with Mark Berndt
August 18 - August 22, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

►►SORRY, THIS WORKSHOP WILL NOT BE RUNNING.

Compelling environmental portraits are made, not “taken.” Ideally, they celebrate the subject in surroundings that add dimension and create a rich visual narrative. Confidence on location is the result of professional preparation and pre-visualization, supported by proven methods. On that foundation, a photographer can build rapport with a subject and capture a genuine moment.

Over five days, participants build confidence by exploring processes that inform their vision. We start with an introduction to our camera gear, simple lighting, and the practice of tethered photography. Then, we accompany Mark on an environmental portrait session, after which we scout locations and discuss camera angles, lens choices, and available light and lighting, while developing concepts for our own projects. Over the next few days, participants each make portraits in their chosen locations. Finally, we examine how post-processing can impact the finished piece.

Throughout, Mark offers demonstrations, reviews, inspiration, and encouragement. Daily discussion and critiques—in conjunction with real-time practice and feedback—build participants' understanding of the power of intentional image-making. You come away with a firm grasp of the concepts and skills that can take your portraiture to the next level.
