Portrait Photography (Ages 11-12)
Consider what makes a compelling portrait. It’s easy to take a picture of a person, but not always as simple to capture that person’s character. You’ll learn how to use film cameras, studio lighting and natural lighting. We’ll also cover film development and how to print portraits in the darkroom.
About the Instructor
I am a photographer and educator, focusing in historic photographic processes. I work with medium and large format film, as well as create negatives using the wet-plate collodion process. Frequently, I can be found setting up my mobile darkroom along bucolic back roads and hazy riverbeds, working with my hands and light to capture a disappearing reality. As an artist, my work is greatly influenced by the land I come from, a place of impenetrable growth and dark tunnels of kudzu. I use historic photographic processes to capture contemporary subjects and I have a portrait studio here in Richmond where I enjoy collaborating and creating with members of our community.See More Classes By Instructor Instructor Website
