The Art of the Selfie
6:00 PM
Rocky Mountain School of Photography
A handful of years ago, the word didn't even exist. Then, just five years ago in 2012, the Oxford English Dictionary chose it as its Word of the Year. Soon enough everyone from school kids to world leaders were getting in on the selfie action. The rest as they say, is history. Albeit, very modern history.

Now is your chance to own up to your selfie fascination, and take your game to the next level. This three-session class isn't about awkwardly holding your phone at the end of an outstretched arm while mashing your face against someone else's and rocking the cheesiest smile you are capable of. Rather, this mini course is meant to move you closer to being a well-informed portrait photographer who notices, and actually cares about the quality of light, technical aspects, and overall message delivered via their self portraits. Instructor Sarah Chaput de Saintonge will help you overcome the technical hurdles of self-portraiture, help you generate ideas, teach you to notice how light and shadow impact your face, and edit your photos using the Brenizer method of expansion in order to achieve an unreal shallow depth of field.

So, um ... yeah ... this isn't your average selfie class.
