Join us on two consecutive Saturdays to explore contemporary approaches to portrait photography. How can ordinary people make extraordinary photographs of friends and strangers?  The discussion will address challenges like access and permissions, as well as formal and technical considerations involved in making compelling portraits.
The workshop will involve an introductory talk, a shooting assignment, discussion, and peer review.
