What differentiates an environmental portrait from a more standard portrait is the freedom the photographer has to manipulate the elements or “environment” ultimately making up the final image. The photographer is not necessarily looking for any sort of “truth” in the portrait or even any direct representation of what the subject actually looks like. Instead, his role is to create a truly inventive, interesting, and even offbeat photograph. This hands-on course will cover all elements of creating environmental portraits, and the students will participate in all aspects of the process. By its end, students’ competency as beginning or improved environmental portrait photographers will be evident in the images they have produced in class.
