 Master Workshop 402

The Memorable Portrait with Mickey Strand

Critique Wednesday 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Digital Lab 2

Additional Fee: $30.00

Taking a portrait is more than setting up lights and checking the exposure. For Mickey Strand, it's finding that unique person's special moment. Spend some time with Mickey to learn his techniques for photographing a genuine subject. The result will be an intimate portrait. Mickey developed this skill while collecting images and stories from hundreds of veterans. His current exhibition, the Veterans Portrait Series, documents stories of service, currently focused on the veterans of World War II. In this workshop, you will shoot using studio flash heads and continuous light/ LED studio heads and discuss using color-tunable LED continuous studio light or strobe flash heads.

Location: Studio 1

8:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Chasing the Elusive Butterfly with Barbara Ellison

Additional Fee: $30.00

Like flowers in flight, the butterflies soar about you with colorful wings, challenging you to capture their beauty. A trip to Butterfly World will open your eyes to a new adventure as Barbara guides you through the art of creating unique imagery from documentary to abstract.

Little Havana Portrait Shoot: Making Dignified Portraits of Everyday People with Alison Wright

Learn how to create beautiful portraits that capture the emotive beauty and grace of the human face. National Geographic contributing photographer Alison Wright will show you how to use available light in a colorful and bustling domino park in Little Havana's Calle Ocho. Wright's photography has been featured in National Geographic Society publications, Smithsonian, Outside, Time, Islands, and The New York Times, as well as a number of books, including “Face to Face: Portraits of the Human Spirit” and “Human Tribe.” The recipient of the Dorothea Lange Award in Documentary Photography for covering child labor in Asia, and a two-time recipient of the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award, Alison captures the tapestry of humanity in all its diversity and splendor. Take some of the Cuban spirit home with you!

 Master Workshop 403

Demystify Lighting…ANY lighting! With Ross Whitaker

Critique Wednesday 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm in Classroom 1

Strobe lights, hot lights, fluorescent lights, sunlight, cloudy light, lamplight, window light… sometimes it can all get a bit overwhelming! There are some basics at the root of all lighting solutions. Ross will teach you the “rules” by example, and then you will practice, practice, practice. We will spend some time outside on location learning to really see the light. Ross will teach some simple techniques to understand various “light shapers." There will also be some time in the studio to apply the basics you learned outside. This session will illustrate that it does not matter what delivers the light, but the shape, size, and distance of that light that gives you fantastic results.

Critique Wednesday 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm in Classroom 1

Location: Studio 1

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
