Making Portraiture Personal (Get Off Your A$$)

Zack Arias | Lighting - Intermediate

When you have learned all the rules of lighting and posing for portraiture it is time to start breaking those rules.

Zack Arias has spent years working on the technical side of the craft and now he is breaking out of his comfort zone. He's begun making portraits that matter to him far more than whatever technique was used to capture them. Working with ordinary subjects in ordinary locations, he is striving to make unordinary portraits.

This class is for the advanced photographer who has a foundational understanding of exposure and lighting techniques. Zack will be working with you to break you out of your ordinary way of shooting portraits to create something more personal for you as a photographer. These aren’t photos for the subjects. These are photographs for you.
