London Caravaggio (Chiaroscuro & Expression) Portrait Photography Workshop Saturday 5th May 2018

“Fine Art Portrait Photographer Rory Lewis, is running a workshop focused on recreating the work of the Renaissance Painter Caravaggio.”

 

London, England (UK) Saturday 5th May 2018

 

(Left Actor René Auberjonois Rory Lewis Photographer 2017) Renaissance portraiture and the use of chiaroscuro by the masters has been of immense inspiration to my photographic style. For those unfamiliar, chiaroscuro is an oil painting technique, developed during the Renaissance.  The technique uses strong tonal contrasts between light and dark to model three-dimensional forms. Artists such as Caravaggio used chiaroscuro for dramatic effect. Painting vivid religious depictions of light and shadow.

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas by Caravaggio

 “LEARN VIVID & INCREDIBLE LIGHTING AND DIRECTIONAL TECHNIQUE FROM ONE OF BRITAINS LEADING PHOTOGRAPHERS.”

Actor Tony Amendola Rory Lewis Fine Art Portrait Photographer

Recently I have attempted to emulate Caravaggio’s naturalism and dramatic lighting with photographic effect. (Above Sir Patrick Stewart, Rory Lewis Photographer 2017) Creating a series of portraits with super detail of skin tone, texture and colour. Using inventive art direction I opted for vivid and stark expressions. Over the summer i’ll be teaching a workshop to help you re-create these portraits. On the day I will feature THREE Professional models with amazing bone structure.  The workshop will give you the unique opportunity to learn new skills in lighting and direction to create your own Vivid & Dramatic Caravaggio Style Portfolio.

“Excellent photography workshop. We went through 8 different light set ups starting with a single light source and ending up with two light sources with the tightest control of the light. There was a lot to take in and was very happy with the photos I took. The breadth of the material covered was excellent. Very pleased to have attended. Thanks Rory!”

Victoria & Albert Museum Workshop

Thank you to everyone who attended my Three Day Portrait Photography Workshop at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. It was wonderful to teach such a diverse group with several of the attendees coming from Portugal Belgium and France. The workshop was a pleasure to teach, with access to an immense collection of art to inspire the delegates throughout the three days.

 

Working with three unique models on each day the delegates were able to hone their skills, learning how to light and direct subjects for many different situations. The delegates were then able to plan and execute their own photoshoots with the models taking inspiration from the galleries collection of portraiture.

 

I’m looking forward to returning to the V&A next year to teach another workshop. If you are interested in my Photography Courses, I have a range of workshops on offer including group as well as One-to-One Sessions.
