Intention, light and the responsive portrait
This content only for 18 years and over
Photographing with intention is what separates the lucky, candid portrait from the evocative portrait. The evocative portrait begins with mindfulness and sensitivity towards the subject.
Light is also key, but lighting can seem overwhelming with its many tools and techniques. But once your intention is clear, those choices quickly narrow, letting the fun begin. In this stimulating presentation, Gregory Heisler will inspire you to change gears.
He'll explain his philosophy and methodology as a deliberate process that leaves room for the inevitable, unpredictable, spontaneous shifts that occur when the picture is being made.
While portraiture is always collaborative, the power ultimately rests with the photographer—learn how to use this power to create the best work for your clients, and for yourself.
