Portraiture and figurative imagery continue to be a fascinating and daunting challenge for photographers. Learn lighting patterns used by painters and master photographers through the ages for portraiture and artistic figurative work. Joyce will guide you with demonstrations and each participant will work with models to create unique images. You will learn to think and work like an artist… adding texture layers, and compositing elements with Photoshop and NIK software to alter and enhance the original image to a subtler art form. Your finished composite will be printed on luscious art papers, collage elements added along with pastel or paint techniques applied to create one of a kind art pieces.
Basic knowledge of Photoshop is not required, but extremely helpful. We will be able to guide you, if you are new to PS.
