10 AM - 1 PM

Cost: 90  

It's fun to think about how you would you portray yourself in a self-portrait. (We're talking more than a selfie here.) Would you show your whole body or just a part. Would you use props or places that have meaning for you? Would you dress a certain way or play with interesting disguises? Would you show inanimate objects that represent you, rather than your living, breathing self?  What is the best way to show who you really are?

This course will inspire self-discovery, provide new and useful technical tools, and offer fun hands-on ways of creating the photographic self-portrait. (After all, your subject is always available.) We'll study the art of the self-timer, lighting, costume and set design, light painting, multiple exposure, collage techniques, and layering in Photoshop.

Students can expect to:

  • become more familiar with their camera

  • learn about exposure, composition, lighting, collage, and simple Photoshop tools

  • have their technical questions answered directly

  • participate in a friendly critique session of their work

Course Requirements

  • Suitable for all levels of photographers
