As photographers we want our images to make an impact on the viewer and compel them to stop and take a longer look. In an era where we are bombarded with imagery all the time, this is easier said than done. Fine art portraiture combines dynamic lighting with creative posing and compelling visual themes. During this lecture and demonstration, Laura Tillinghast will share her secrets on how she works with her subjects to create moments of photo magic. These techniques will help you add that little something extra to your portraits.
