Celebrity portraits often look like they took hours, if not days, to set up. The reality is that the shot is often snapped within a few minutes. This course teaches students how to deal with tricky lighting, location nightmares, uncooperative subjects, and other issues, alleviating unnecessary pressures during a shoot. The class works with both male and female models, solving all of the unexpected little problems that can hamper the making of a beautiful portrait.
David teaches master lighting techniques customized for the individual subject. The lighting is sculpted and shaped to varying degrees based on a trained eye, not formulas or lighting diagrams. The class will emphasize seeing the light, the process of an artist at work, the cascading effects of decision-making, and tonal values that make or break a great image.
