FEATURED WORKSHOPS

Saturday, Oct. 24 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. - $149

As photographers, it's more often than not our job to tell a story with our pictures. For Washington, D.C. photographer Jonathan Thorpe, a portrait is never just a portrait. Behind every portrait is the potential to tell a story, and it's up to us as shooters to evoke that narrative and make more than pretty pictures.

For Jonathan, the most effective way to create narrative in an image is with lighting. Off camera lighting can be used in many different ways to evoke emotions, or guide your viewer around the photo and precisely tell your story.

We will host an intimate narrative horror-themed shooting experience with professional models on Saturday, Oct. 24 at New Republic Studios in Elgin, TX. This workshop will be limited to 15 students.

Cinematic lighting is all about creating a mood and feeling in the image. By the use of one or many off camera flashes, you can achieve a unique look and style to your own photos, and help you stand out amongst other shooters. Jonathan will start with one flash and work my way up to four to six other lights and create incredible scenes where we are lighting the environment as well as the subject.
