Learn how light moves and illuminates the nature and building of Peters Valley while capturing the essence of people and their environment in a Day, Night or Twilight Portrait. We will begin the class with lessons on light and composition and then apply those principles to Creative Portrait photography. Find your style, tell a story, capture a moment, use approaches to directing people, all of these techniques together with environment, composition and light will help us create the story of our subjects. There will be daily assignments, location scouting and open critiques. Participants must bring their DSLR camera and tripod.
