Taking Perfect Portrait Reference Photos Like a Pro!

Taking Perfect Portrait Reference Photos Like a Pro!

In this three-hour workshop, Shana and David will go through the different equipment such as cameras, lights, and software that they use to capture beautifully clear photo reference that mimic the information that artists would have when drawing or painting from a live model. They fully describe the benefits of working with strobe lights to capture natural lighting on the model even with many different strong chiaroscuro lighting conditions. Discussion will also revolve around the pitfalls of photography and how to fully understand all aspects of what one is capturing in one’s painting. Students will leave this workshop with many quality photo references of their own to work with. This information is invaluable to those artists that work on commissioned portraits as well as personal paintings. www.davidkassan.com www.shanalevenson.com
