HOLIDAY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY MADE SIMPLE WITH JOHN KERANS

With Photojournalist and Instructor John Kerans
Thursday, December 3rd, 2020
Online: 6pm – 7:15pm CST

This course explains how to create compelling “on location” portraits – at home, at work, at play – without the need for a studio or expensive equipment. Learn why a “long lens” makes faces look great, and find out how to adapt your existing lenses for portrait shoots. Discover how to separate your subjects from the background by using a shallow focus to replicate the look of a Hollywood motion picture. Identify the best angles from which to shoot in order to make your subjects – young or old – look their best. Take advantage of available light and practice how to supplement what’s available by using an external flash, a cheap reflector, or both.

John Kerans is a graduate of the Army’s photojournalism school who later earned his BA in photojournalism at the University of Minnesota, a community college teaching certificate from Arizona State, and an MA in advertising.
