Total duration10 hours
Group size6 students max.

Teenagers have a lot of fun taking photos of their friends, so why not learn how to take stunning portraits?

In this intermediate level class students will learn about different types of portraits and when to use them. Some examples are candid, environmental, self-portrait and creative.

In this portraiture class teens will look at the different elements that make up a portrait. Such elements as:

  • The background- many times we think of the background the least but it can help us remember a special place, perhaps the skate park, a moment in time, or a birthday party. 
  • Learn to guide your subject to get the portrait you are looking for. Do you want them to appear as a cool guitar player, a great ballerina, or a funny friend?
  • Creating a mood in your photo with natural light, studio lights, light modifiers, and more.

This is a fun class in which students will be constantly practicing the different aspects of portrait by taking pictures of their classmates.
