What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Figure and Form. An Evocative Portraiture Workshop
August 9, 11:30am - 1:00pm PDT. Hosted at The Archery
part of a series on Muse
About this FieldTrip
One of our Muses is in town and we’re so excited to host this workshop. Ally Schmaling (they) is a nonbinary portrait photographer based in Boston, MA and is dedicated to the documentation and elevation of queer and gender-expansive communities in their art. Their painterly work aims to express the most dynamic, unapologetic, and expansive “them-ness” of their subjects.
Using color, light, and shape as their primary tools, Ally will lead a truly unique, hands-on photography workshop focused on shooting portraiture that details nontraditional lighting techniques, thought-provoking composition, and tips on how to engage photographic subjects in a way that is, above all else, authentic. Expect this workshop to color outside of the lines.
Required: Bring a camera for this one (an iPhone is fine!) and a sense of curiosity!
Dress to express your inner Muse. Everyone is Welcome, Everyone is Creative!
