Fine Art Portraiture
Strong portraits make the viewer stop and take a longer look. In an era where we are bombarded with imagery all the time, it’s difficult to stand out from the crowd. In this workshop you will learn not only the fundamentals of portrait lighting, but also how to add that extra something to make a strong visual impact. 


Laura Tillinghast, instructor & professional photographer, has developed a strategy to create these dynamic portraits and she will share those techniques with you. Laura will share her tips for making her subjects comfortable in front of a camera as well as how to get the best poses and expressions. Learn how to tell a story with your images with creative theming. She will show you how to finish the job with some post production tips and tricks.


Light snacks and drinks will be provided. You are welcome to bring a lunch or snack with you.

Instructor Bio:

Born and raised on the West Coast, Laura Tillinghast began making art at a young age. She explored many mediums until finally settling on photography when she was 17 years old. From that point on, she knew she had found the tool she was looking for to bring her imagination to life. Shooting primarily advertising and editorial content, you never know what you will find in front of Laura's lens. Whether it is a gorgeous model, a rock band or a bowl of oatmeal, she shoots with the same goal in mind; make it beautiful.
