July 15, Michael Spengler at MoPA
The difference between an ordinary photograph and a truly striking portrait lies in the photographer's ability to reveal the intimate nature of the subject. The play of available angles, light and shadow, soft shapes and hard lines are tools to create not just a photo, but a work of art. In this seminar, you will add these tools to your camera bag. Using his own work as reference, Michael will explain his techniques for creating light and shadow and will demonstrate how he creates his stylistic and dramatic images. During the last two hours, Michael will explain lighting and posing during a live action demo in and around Balboa Park and work with you as you put his techniques to work with real models.
