Mastering the Portrait
with Karen Kuehn
July 22 - July 27, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Put your fingerprint on your portraits! Designed for accomplished photographers who want to extract more from both their subjects and themselves, Karen challenges participants to break out of the routine, push the boundaries, and find new ways of seeing that utilize all the senses.

Throughout the week, we discuss ways to evoke mood through human emotion, lighting options, and staying open to all the unexpected possibilities. Karen guides participants through ways to approach a subject and the process of “reading” people in order to capture their essence. An exploration of the senses allows us to find deeper ways of communicating that result in a more soulful image. Participants practice how to formulate ideas prior to photographing, as well as learning when to abandon the best laid plans when a more inspired approach suddenly presents itself. When mastering the portrait you should expect the unexpected!

If you are an intuitive thinker who has a penchant for following a more creative approach to portraiture, and are looking to step out of your comfort zone, then Karen leads the way for you to amplify the evocative.
