Location: Adorama, 42 West 18th Street, New York
Price: $25.00 – Registration deadline for this Special Event is April 11, 2011

Great portraits capture the soul and spirit of your subject. This Special Event with celebrity portrait photographer Brian Smith will focus on ways of breaking down barriers and the secrets of working quickly to capture the great portraits, whether you have minutes, hours, or days to get the shot.

I’ll be sharing the lessons I’ve learned over the past 30 years as a top magazine portrait photographer capturing the faces of the famous, infamous and even the un-famous. We will talk about keys to capturing great photographs of people on location by learning to blend personality and place to reveal more details about the subject.

This seminar will focus on:

* How choosing a great location can enhance the mood and feel of a portrait
* Examples of location lighting large and small
* How to combine strobe with ambient light to create dramatic portraits
* How to bring back great portraits of people you meet while traveling

Each attendee will receive a $25.00 coupon at the event in exchange for a copy of their registration receipt. The coupon will be valid for 30 days towards the purchase of any merchandise when presented at either Adorama’s retail store at 42 West 18th Street, New York, or for an online purchase at www.adorama.com

  1. Thanks so much for a wonderful workshop last night. My friend felt very inspired to pick up her camera again and take more photos. As to me, I look forward to taking some street portraiture in Cambodia with the techniques I learned from the workshop. I will be there with an NGO to help build a school in a poor community. Thanks again!
