World-renowned photographer and educator, <a “href=”https://www.mainemedia.edu/faculty/list/laurie-klein/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Laurie Klein, will lead you through the art and techniques of photographing the female form in the natural landscape.  Each day as we photograph in a variety of landscapes we will concentrate on pre-visualizing, posing, and relationship-building between you and your models who are vulnerable subjects in nature. Laurie will concentrate on helping you identify and develop your authentic personal style. There will also be daily critiques, and one on one time with Laurie. Post-production and workflow will be covered.

This workshop is for infrared, Black & White, and Color photographers. No film processing is available, however.

Instructor: Laurie Klein

Laurie gained acclaim and recognition as an infrared and black and white portrait photographer photographing the female form in the environment. She has her BFA from RIT and her MFA from OU. She has been teaching for more than 30 years, and her work has appeared in hundreds of publications and numerous gallery exhibitions.  She is author of two infrared photography books published by Amherst Media: Photography and Artistic Techniques for Brilliant Images (co-authored with her son Kyle Klein), Photographing and The Female Form with Digital Infrared and Infrared. What solidified her love and passion for landscape photography was when she began photographing black and white and infrared film under the tutelage of Ansel Adams when she was a young woman.
