      Portraits: Natural & Flash with Bobbi Lane & Lee Varis

      The photographer's challenge in creating a compelling portrait involves both creative and technical concepts combined in a way that evokes meaning and impact. This intensive and fun one-day workshop will show essential approaches to matching the light with your ideas. Good lighting techniques, along with posing, tonalities, mood, expression, camera angles and backgrounds must harmonize to create a successful photographic portrait.   Everyone has natural light available, but not necessarily the understanding of how to find and manipulate it with reflectors and diffusers to create the most pleasing or effective image. We work with window light, backlight, open shade and garage door lighting and explore how the qualities of each contribute to the feeling of the portrait.   Portable flash is a wonderful and sometimes intimidating tool and it will be explained step by step on how to choose the correct settings and modifiers. We will demo using TTL and Manual settings and why, and give easy instructions for making beautiful Fill Flash. A variety of lighting techniques will be covered with the emphasis on understanding the three main aspects of light: direction, quality and depth.   Participants will be shooting with models at the Saugus Iron Works. They should be comfortable with shooting on manual mode and have a solid understanding of the foundations of photography.
