Lighting Dramatic Portraits with David Robin

Lighting Dramatic Portraits With David Robin At Sante Fe Workshops April 3-6

Portraitists, whether painters or photographers, are always confronted with the challenge of creating evocative and meaningful images of their subjects. In this workshop, David aims to decode this mystery and explore techniques to help participants develop their own unique voice and style.

Portraiture is a collaboration between photographer and subject, requiring skills beyond the technical. After examining the work of some of the master photographers in the genre, we explore simplified methods of working with subjects, including using light and setting to “speak” with our images. Through studio and location demonstrations, discussions, guest speakers, and assignments, participants learn how to visualize each portrait and how to create the appropriate environment and lighting to convey mood and emotion. David explains and demonstrates his techniques for achieving meaningful portraits, covering the gamut of editorial, beauty, advertising, and journalism. Participants leave Santa Fe with a refreshed, more clearly defined personal vision and the ability to achieve tangible photographic results.

The Intimate Portrait with Joyce Tenneson

There are many elements that go into creating a memorable portrait. Not surprisingly, many of them start with the photographer rather than with the subject. Designed to guide you in developing a style that is consistent with your own personality and interests, this four-day workshop with portrait master Joyce Tenneson explores and demystifies many of the inhibitions photographers typically experience when working on portraits of people.

We work with models, and each other, to create images that go below the surface and penetrate deeply into the subject’s character. Outdoors on location, we make use of the beautiful light of Santa Fe. We also have access to The Workshops portrait studio, where she demonstrates the simple lighting techniques she has used for creating her many memorable portraits.

For anyone looking to improve their creativity as a portrait photographer—from composition to styling to lighting—this workshop will give you the confidence you need to move you forward in the wonderful and exciting world of the portrait.

Joyce is the author of 13 books, including the best-selling Wise Women, which was featured in a six-part Today show series. Her most recent book, Joyce Tenneson: A Life in Photography, is a retrospective look at her long career.
