Fine Art Portraiture: Composing with Light & Creative Framing (Kiyah Crittendon)
Limited Capacity seats available

This shoot will be a combination of demonstration and hands-on learning focused on intentional uses of natural light, posing, and framing to compose one-of-a-kind couples' portraits. I will walk through what I initially look for as I scout a location as well as my thought process as I'm actually shooting with my subjects. For part of the session, students will observe as I narrate the shoot with the couple, and for a portion of the program students will have the opportunity to put the techniques to use. We will focus primarily on techniques that can be used in any natural light, at any location, and with any type of subject to transform your portraits from average to eye-catching and unique with a fine art feel. These techniques will include posing cues that bring out your subject's personality, using objects to artistically frame your subject, and maximizing the environment you're in no matter how big or small it may be or how much time you have to shoot.

Students should bring their cameras and have experience shooting in manual mode. Feel free to bring along any interesting objects to experiment with while shooting, such as broken glass, prisms, colorful plastic, etc.

Location: This outdoor boutique program will take place on the grounds of the plantation.

Learning Objectives:
1. Create unique fine art portraits in any lighting situation.
2. Master framing techniques that transform portraits from average to eye-catching.
3. Pose and direct your subjects in ways that best bring out their personality.
