Great portraits don’t just happen. They require planning, preparation and good communication with your subject.
This webinar will focus on what goes in to making compelling and alluring portraits, no matter who or what the subject is.
Sports Illustrated staff photographer Bill Frakes has made portraits of everyone from President Obama to Frakes’ 9-year-old daughter, Havana. Each portrait requires the same kind of thought process. You need to know the kind of person you are taking the photo of and what you want it to look like. Once that is decided, you can go about planning lighting schemes and preparing or researching backgrounds.
Bill will go over lighting and support equipment, the planning process and how he makes his subjects feel at ease. He will give specific examples and explain his thought process and execution.
One such example was his 10-day road trip around the USA to make six cover portraits for Sports Illustrated before the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament.
This webinar will cover both studio and environmental portraiture. REGISTER HERE FOR THE WEBINAR
