Mojo Rising: Portraits from the Heart
with Karen Kuehn
June 26 - July 2, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Portraiture is storytelling. Great portraits, like great stories, come from the heart. In this workshop, we embark on a journey of discovery that is part self-exploration and part photographic technique. Through exercises that use sound, smell, taste, touch, and vision, we tap the senses that enable us to extract telling images from even the most uninspiring of subjects.

This class is not for the meek. You must be open to looking in the mirror and doing what it takes to find and express the personal stories, thoughts, and images that lay dormant in your creative core. Participants maintain a journal of each day’s experiences and revelations, and from that material choose images to create daily. Each day’s photo assignment will reflect the individual gems you uncover from deep inside. Any and all props you bring are welcome.

This approach to finding your personal style is merged with technical material covering lighting, the symmetry of the human face, point of view, awareness of settings, styling and props, and format and style. We work on how to best illustrate emotions and explore methods for breaking down barriers between subject and photographer.

If you are stalled in your creativity this is the workshop to jump-start the energy. Join us and see how the mojo develops. Uncover the inspiration from within, and reveal the expression of those findings in your photographs.
