Saturday 10 am
Arrival at Studio IVOvonRENNER, get to know each other at light breakfast. Every participant should present 3 to 5 of his favorite shots. We will create and order whom we will photograph first. The challenge of this practice is to dispute with the physiognomy of each participant, his or her perception after the consulting of the make up artist. Thereafter we will wisely select light and background. Besides the working outfit you are wearing it is beneficial to bring your favorite blouse or that specific coat you love so much. There will be a light lunch break and at the end of the day a common in-house dinner.
Sunday 9 am
We will share breakfast. A short consideration of the previous days work gives us the possibility to rehearse what we have done so far with a different result or to create a totally new Portrait. Very close up or whole-body picture. We will have a lunch break again and tea/ coffee time in the afternoon. At the end of the Workshop when you drive home everyone should have 2 excellent portraits of him/herself plus 2 portraits of the participant you have portrayed - each printed on A3+.
