14 photography classes start in January as part of the Winter 2019 Class and Workshop schedule, including two that deal exclusively with portraiture. Compelling Dynamic Portraits starts on Saturday, January 12 and offers you the opportunity of working in different surroundings and situations. Students will work with each other as models to explore the many levels of portraiture in black and white and in color. Students will observe the essence of environment and subject through composition, metaphor and relationships using natural light and flash as fill-in light. Students need to know how their camera operates, using such functions as f-stops, and shutter speeds, and ISO. No point-and-shoot cameras or iPhones.

Great Creative Portraiture, starting on Saturday, January 26, is a hands-on class that explores the art of photographing people with instruction in lighting and camera technique. You will learn the creative tools and techniques that can be applied to fine art and client-based portraiture, as well as your own personal work! Create great photos of your friends and family! Taught by a local full-time professional photographer. You will learn so many great tips in this course! Dress for going outdoors.
