In this class, students will learn to shoot creative location portraits outdoors. They will explore the various qualities of existing natural light, from direct to diffused, as well as selective focus, color and composition. Students will learn to direct their subjects by taking turns posing for each other. A prop or two can also be brought to the class — a hat, gloves, shoes, a mask — to add a bit of drama and artistry to the portrait. Students should wear clothing they would like to be photographed in. The class will take place in and around Washington Square Park, Philadelphia, including side streets and alleys. Instructor: Jenny Lynn.
