    PAINTERLY PORTRAITS
    A MODERN TAKE ON THE OLD MASTERS

    by Barbara MacFerrin


    How is it that some images are exquisite harmonies of textures, colors, mood, and expressions beyond most of our imaginations? And how could we learn to be such masters of artistry?  Wonder no more!

    Join us in June for our monthly guild meeting, and workshop the following day with portrait artist Barbara MacFerrin; “Painterly Portraits - A Modern Take on the Old Masters”.





    Barbara is an award winning fine art portrait photographer and PPA Master Photographer based in Colorado with over 25 years of photography experience and has earned the title of Accredited Master Level Photographer of The Portrait Masters organization. Her work is inspired by old master paintings, aiming to capture a soulful intensity in her subjects.


      

    In this workshop, Barbara will teach how she uses one and two studio lighting setups to achieve the optimal lighting to create painterly portraits. She will also discuss various editing techniques using Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop as well as the use of digital textures to enhance the images.

    Derrel Ho-Shing




    Derrel Ho-Shing is a Photographic Artist based out of Toronto Canada, who specializes in Weddings and Portraits. He is most known for his use of off camera flash and dramatic lighting. He is a Top Pro Ambassador for Westcott Lighting.


    He started his journey with photography in 2009, and immediately fell in love with off camera lighting and bokeh. He was amazed at how the in camera effects looked photoshopped. The way he was blown away, he wanted his future clients to feel the exact same way.


    Since then, Derrel has gone on to film several destination weddings in Costa Rica, Jamaica, Cuba, Mexico, and DR. He’s shot various ad campaigns for Nick Cannon’s Ncredible Brand, Hip Hop artists such as Royce Da 5’9” & Boi1da and various fashion shoots for different high end clothing brands and boutiques. He enjoys teaching off camera flash, he’s hosted lighting workshops at WPPI, PPA’s Imaging USA as well as the Photo Cookout.


    When he’s not shooting, editing or filming his Youtube videos, Derrel enjoys long walks in the park (no really, he does... no lie), spending time with his family, learning History, listening to music on FULL BLAST and debating online why Wu-Tang is the greatest Hip Hop group of all time.

    J. Scott Applewhite




    AP senior photographer J. Scott Applewhite received the White House News Photographers Association’s 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award at its annual “Eyes of History” awards gala in Washington on Saturday night.


    “Scott is a big story, big picture photographer. You can count on him to think it through, weigh the options and be in the right place at the right time to capture the moment that stands the test of time in the history books,” said J. David Ake, AP assistant chief of bureau for photography in Washington. “He has made many such images in his career.”


    Applewhite, the recipient of two Pulitzer Prizes, has covered six presidents: Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. He joined AP’s Washington bureau in 1981.

    In an AP video, he described how he tries to peel back the curtain. AP senior photographer J. Scott Applewhite holds a letter from President George H.W. Bush as it is read aloud at the WHNPA's "Eyes of History" gala in Washington, June 10, 2017. (Kevin Wolf/Courtesy of WHNPA)


    “I look for little moments of reality that will get revealed sometimes. It might be in between thoughts, it might be an off-the-cuff remark, it might be a slightly different angle, but little stolen moments. Some of my best pictures have a little larceny in them,” Applewhite said. “But that’s kind of what we look for. It’s the very core of what we’re supposed to do as photojournalists: show somebody what they can’t see on their own.”

    John Hartman,

    M.Photog.Cr, M.Artist, CPP, EA-ASP, Hon. EA-ASP


    An Introduction to the Art of Light Painting


    John Hartman has taken the photographic community by storm with his light painted images. Using simple flashlights, he literally paints small areas of the subject and then masks the individual files (sometimes over 100) into a single, spectacular image that can’t be created by any other method.


    In this hands-on learning experience you will watch an entire light painting process, including set preparation, lighting techniques, and all post-processing steps. You will see each image as it is being made and projected on a large screen.


    You will then watch as John edits and assembles the separate images into a single, beautiful image. In addition, you will discover how to find customers who are likely light painting clients. You’ll learn how to book them, what products to offer and how to price and sell them.



    John has owned his Wisconsin-based studio since 1974 and has been teaching photographers how to improve their imaging and grow their business for the past 38 years. He has remained relevant in the industry by constantly innovating and reinventing his work, business and teaching methodologies.
