Creative Portraiture: Using Water, Smoke and Color
In this class we will discuss how to come up with creative solutions to everyday photographer problems. We will discuss the creative process and how photographers can learn to think through any scenario they encounter. We will produce portraits and landscapes with smoke, gels, filters, water and other random objects to add variance in our work. This class will have a one-hour practical discussion and then a four-hour shooting experience focusing on adding randomness to the shoot to create imagery outside the norm.
THIS CLASS WILL NOT MEET AT PRECISION CAMERA. The class will meet at Rambling Rose Ranch, 11104 Fitzhugh Rd, Austin, TX 78736.
