On May 21st, bring your manual-exposure capable camera, some creative freedom and ideas that can work in a studio. The Phoblographer’s Chris Gampat will show you all of the basics of portraiture including things like:

– Observing specifics of a person’s body and translating that into portraiture

– Using Lighting and placing it accordingly

– Effective communication between you and your subjects

– Exposure settings and making the most of what your gear is capable of

– Working on ideas

– How much portraiture is really about working with people than it is about the gear you’re working with.
