portrait workshop

last weeknd i attended a portrait workshop with one of sweden’s most recognized portrait photographer’s, knut koivisto. from friday afternoon to sunday afternoon there was little less than eyes, light and shadow, and how to get a model to relax in front of a camera in my mind. we got homework too, a self portrait and a portrait, plus we did some practicing during daytime.

the last shot is my quick illustration of 2 lines from that t.s. eliot poem (again);

We think of the key, each in his prison
Thinking of the key, each confirms a prison

      Yes, I can really recommend it. However if you’re after a “how to set my studio lighting” workshop this is not the right one. This is much more about how light and shadow works, composition, interaction with the model and a few tips and tricks for group shots. PM:a mig om du vill veta mer :).

      Thanks D! my aim was to create a sort of french 60’ies film noir feel, hence the title, not sure i was successful – but it turned out a pretty nice portrait anyway. i’m glad you liked it.
