The Dramatic Portrait

If you want to create memorable and dramatic portraiture, this class is a 'must-see.' Chris Knight will cover his essential tips to transform your lighting techniques to create drama. He'll cover topics as diverse as personal style, ratios, cutting light, tightly controlled modifiers, and shaping your shadows. After taking this class you'll be prepared with new tools and techniques to take your portraiture to the next level. After the shooting demonstration, Chris takes you through a post-production workflow showing you how to work with dark tones and maximize their impact!

Chris Knight was born in Wiesbaden, Germany and hardened by the sweaty, nearly chewable, humidity of Florida. He combines his unconditional love of art history with his conditional love of technology, topping it off with a flair for the cinematic and an uncompromising eye for detail.

His work has appeared in or on Vogue, People, MSNBC, ABC, Ocean Drive, GQ and others.

Chris is the author of The Dramatic Portrait, a Profoto Legend of Light, Fujifilm Creator, and an instructor at Pratt Institute as well as the New York Film Academy.
