The Modern Portrait in Black and White
with Paul Elledge, Leasha Overturf
August 5 - August 10, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Designed for photographers who are ready for the challenge of going beyond the surface of traditional photographic portraits, this workshop emphasizes creating a personal style of portraiture through the nontraditional use of black-and-white and environment. Using any and all photographic tools, Paul and Leasha illuminate ways to expand the photographic possibilities of the modern black-and-white portrait. Other topics focused on include instinct, self-confidence, and trust in the creative process.

We explore creative freedom and discover new ways of seeing that come from the imagination. Through lectures, critiques, demonstrations, assignments, and the study of Paul and Leasha’s own portraits, participants are inspired to push beyond the traditional rules of portrait making to define a more contemporary approach. We photograph both models and Santa Fe residents from all walks of life in a variety of interesting locations.

Throughout the week we learn to connect not only with our subjects, but also with ourselves. As we define a personal style, we learn to trust our personal point of view.
