Portraits That Make a Difference
with Scott Pasfield
July 29 - August 3, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Everyone has dreams and passions. Harnessing them to create personal projects that make a difference in the world is one of the most rewarding things a photographer can do. In this workshop Scott encourages us to explore our own lives, in order to find purpose with our portraiture and turn our dreams into reality.

Trust, compassion, empathy, and communication are so very important for engaging with subjects and putting them at ease. Scott explores how these qualities can be used to the photographer's advantage in order to bring out the best in subjects, resulting in powerful portraits. Breaking down the barrier that exists between subject and photographer is addressed and put to the test through fun psychological exercises.

Critical to making great portraits is the simplification of technique and lighting, to the point where it becomes second nature. Scott shares his simple lighting set-up and methods of combining strobe with natural light to enhance any environment. Participants photograph each other as well as interesting locals in the Santa Fe area. Daily critiques allow for room to learn, grow, and try new things.
