Course Description: The Evocative Portrait, Mastering the essential elements for creative portraits.

This class is for beginning and intermediate photographers who want to learn how to create stunning portraits.  Using Elinchrom studio lighting equipment, Tom will break down the key elements in photographing people.  The class will start with lectures on topics including evaluating/modifying available light, posing your subject, and maximizing your location benefits.  Tom will discuss techniques to create motion portraits including using smoke, water and chalk.  Students will have a chance to use the latest Elinchrom lights including the ELCs which shoot 20 flashes per second for motion capture.  Tom will demonstrate how to choose and create the right light for your subject using various light shaping tools from softboxes to snoots.  Tom will also demonstrate using portable studio strobes on location, and how to create the softest light possible in bright sunny situations.   After lunch we will have models on hand, and the group will be able to shoot portraits in a variety of locations.  This class will be loaded with information, hands on shooting and a full studio of equipment to use, just bring your camera!
