Come to the darker side of portraiture with Gothic Portraiture using specifically tube LED lighting! Rock and celebrity photographer Jeremy Saffer will emphasize Beauty and Darkness with a variety of goth musicians and models, showing different lighting techniques and posing to bring out the unique look of each artist. Afterward, attendees take over and photograph the special guests using the tubes, the fog, and everything they’ve learned from the day!
