What you'll learn in this portrait photography class:

Part 1: Elements of Portraiture

Live, fully interactive virtual learning 

We'll examine what to think about when preparing to shoot a portrait, including the type of portrait and its intended use, from expressive natural portraits to engaging posed portraits, from portraits of family and friends to formal headshots, from street captures to artistic portraits, from social media to prints. We'll learn the importance of light in capturing mood and dig into your questions about gear, lens selection, the relationship of focal length to the prominence of facial features, evaluating backgrounds, and more. 

Part 2: In-Person Portrait Photography Demonstration and Hands-On Practice*, Princeton, NJ 

Thomas demonstrates how he sets up and works with a portrait subject. You'll have the opportunity to shoot individual and group portraits and explore the nuances of light and posing.

* Students who are unable to attend in person will receive portrait projects to complete.

Part 3: Portrait Photo Critique, Q&A

Live, fully interactive virtual learning

We will discuss students' portrait achievements and look at enhancements through editing. You will leave this course with the skills and inspiration to create your own Portrait Portfolio.
