The Professional Certificate program students recently headed out to Hope, Maine, to work on their Location Lighting skills while making portraits of local artisans. What is really cool, and something of a surprise, is how many artists and craftsmen there are in Hope.
We started off with Lindsay Pinchbeck and her Sweet Tree Arts studio.
The next subject was Stephen Gleasner, a world-class woodworker. The students were doing the main lighting and shooting, but I sneaked in a few shots around the edges.
After lunch we headed over to SWiTCH Furniture Design to make portraits of Josh and Owen.
They had a really cool floor lamp made from a can of concrete and some flexible conduit, so I stuck Sean under it and made a portrait of him while the others where busy.
