Camera Works Cafe will hold its first workshop, “Art of the Portrait,” 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4, at Redux Contemporary Art Center, 1056 King St. The cost is $300 per person and registration is required. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop will include discussions about aspects of portraiture: knowing your subject, finding a style, composing and lighting shots, formatting and mastering the technical components.
Participants will interview then photograph fellow workshop photographers. They are expected to bring a camera, a favorite portrait example and three outfits that help convey personality. They will work with digital and film cameras in a variety of lighting scenarios.
The next Camera Works Café meet-up, which is free and open to all, is 6-8 p.m., Feb. 22, at Redux.
