Introduction to Portraiture
with Julien McRoberts
March 21 - March 24, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Explore the joy of creating meaningful photographs of people while learning to overcome all of the accompanying expectations and anxieties associated with the portrait creation process. This workshop prepares each photographer to approach a subject with an active eye, heart, and mind, ready to observe and capture the moment.

Julien gives special emphasis to a very simple working process: the use of available light, movement, depth, and awareness of our surroundings. Through daily assignments, we learn effective methods for putting people at ease, working with models, natural lighting, and key portrait techniques. We learn to focus on our sensitivity on the subject in an effort to create images that are not only interesting to look at, but compelling and evocative as well.

Mornings are dedicated to critique and lectures. Afternoons are spent photographing in the beautiful New Mexico light, exploring a variety of locations while utilizing your new skills—all in conjunction with Julien’s hands-on guidance.

Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico is comprised of a diverse population and provides a wealth of subject opportunities that allow you to embrace the portrait creation process and build confidence. Come prepared to bring out the most in yourself and your subjects!
