Conceptual Photography with Ann Elliott Cutting (One session)
- November 23, 2019
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
What is the meaning behind your imagery? Can the viewer connect to your photograph in a conceptual way? Is it an emotional connection, or a clever idea, or does the viewer feel the “aha” experience when viewing your work? Do you share a narrative or tell a story with your work?
In this one-day conceptual photography course, students will learn to develop their ideas and think before shooting. Concepts will be discussed, critiqued and communicated among class members to brainstorm the best way to convey an idea. Students will be provided exercises to inspire clever visualization, as well as sketching thumbnails in order to learn about planning and pre-production. The goal of the class is provide students a new workflow that cultivates developing concepts and planning creative work, laying the foundation to create a series of conceptual images.
The course will include a lecture to inspire, formulation of concepts, and critique of students’ work. Please bring a DSLR camera or cell phone camera and 10 small simple props that are one color (for example: apple, coffee mug, ball of string, pair of scissors, spoon, fork, scotch tape, paper, flower, pencil).
