Become a Better Photographer

Learn how to take fantastic pictures of people. The NCC Division of Extended Studies and Workforce Development is offering a four-session non-credit course on Photographing People.

The class will meet from noon to 4 p.m. Sundays, beginning July 10.

This is a technique course exploring various genres of people photography, including portrait, lifestyle, editorial and photojournalism styles.

The course will begin with a discussion of the characteristics of light in photographic terms. Students will compare and contrast natural light, tungsten light, and electronic flash as light sources.

Instructor Lawrence Frank, a professional photographer, will demonstrate how the quality and direction of light can dramatically change the look and feel of a photograph, thus impacting the viewer’s emotional response.

Through lecture, discussion, and demonstration, the class will explore the psychological, emotional and technical aspects of photographing strangers, friends and loved ones in both casual and formal settings, using natural, artificial or mixed lighting.

Instructor Lawrence Frank is an alumnus of the Art Center College of Design and the University of Connecticut. His background includes fine art and commercial photography. He currently does photo assignments for corporate clients.

The course fee is $265. This class will meet at the instructor’s studio in Wilton, Connecticut. (Directions will be sent to registrants prior to the first class).
