In this no-nonsense approach to classic portraiture, photographer Josh Lehrer will cover the main principles of portrait photography, including the four basic angles of lighting. He’ll then show you how to replicate them without the fuss (or expense!) of a full studio setup to achieve beautiful, natural portraits that get to the heart and soul of your subjects.

This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet for an intro and slideshow session in the Photoville Workshop Area before heading out for a live, guided shooting session in and around Photoville. The workshop also includes an optional wrap-up session and casual group critique, where students can share work and ideas, and get feedback from instructors and workshop peers.

PRESENTER BIO

Josh Lehrer‘s photographs have appeared all over New York in galleries and exhibitions, as well as on billboards and in subway stations. Whether it is the chaos of homelessness, celebrity, propulsive success or projected sentiment; capturing the individual, their unique survival strengths, and the sudden discovery of calm in the center of personal storms drives Josh’s portraiture.

His clients are indie films, business leaders, Broadway blockbusters, screen stars and large commercial enterprises.

With an eye toward social justice, Josh created the series, “Becoming Visible,” focused on New York City’s fastest growing homeless population: transgender teenagers. In 2010, the first of these images premiered at the Robert Miller Gallery and have since appeared in galleries and museums all over the world. The series garnered the 2010 Photo Philanthropy award and was a centerpiece of Photoville in 2012.

Josh lives and works on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and is a graduate of Boston University’s School for the Arts and The International Center of Photography.
