The human face carries the marks of life, is a roadmap to who we are, and helps identify us as an individual. Quite often though, we find our subjects hidden behind a "mask” of fear or insecurity. This can apply to a high school senior, a seasoned model, a businessman or even a celebrity. Take a journey as we explore the physical and psychological study on pulling back the multi-facet layers that are involved in identifying "markers" that will reveal your subject and help you create the most honest and accurate portraits of your subjects. We will review techniques beyond posing to help you further your skills as a photographer including non-verbal communication and behavioral profiling which can range from how your subject sits to how they hold their hands. This is the starting point of any great portrait. Also covered will be the study of your subject’s facial structure, identifying anatomical flaws and solving with corrective approaches for the ultimate portrait. Live demonstrations focus on the different qualities of light (including soft light, hard light, diffused light and subtractive light), that are instrumental in creating portraits specific to your subject’s needs.
