In the Narrative Portraiture series, photographer and teacher Chris Orwig explores how to use location and natural light to create images that tell stories about their subjects and produce a strong emotional connection.
In this installment, Chris travels to Texas to visit with Keith Carter, a fine art photographer and teacher, and has a conversation with Keith about his work, outlook on art and photography, and suggestion that photographers commit at least two years to a personal project.
The course continues with a pair of portrait shoots. Keith photographs Chris and describes his process and creative decisions along the way. Then the cameras are swapped and Chris creates a portrait of Keith.
Finally, Chris reviews the photography he took, and discusses the gear he used and the lessons he learned while visiting with and photographing Keith.
Well, that was fascinating, spending some time with Keith Carter and getting to know a little bit about who he is and the art that he creates. And my hope with this segment of our photographic adventure has been that it's provided you with a bit of insight, inspiration, and a few ideas that you can integrate into your own workflow. Well, here is the good news. Our adventure with Keith continues. In the next segment of our photographic adventure we're going to go on location with Keith. He's going to introduce us to few of his creative friends and we're going to explore how we can create portraits of these people in the locations where they live and work.
Well, until the next segment of our photographic adventure, bye for now!
