Online Learning Class via Zoom

Join acclaimed photographer Susan Burnstine for a rich exploration of the self that focuses on exploring, realizing and defining personal narratives through the power of the still image. Using metaphor, symbolism and individual stories, participants will learn to articulate and refine their vision in any genre of the medium, whether that be landscapes, portraits, still life, nature, abstract, photojournalism, self-portrait or documentary.

As photographers, our images are deeply rooted in personal emotion despite being self-created or found scenarios. The aim of this workshop is to guide photographers to become emotionally connected to each image they create, and to convey their vision in a meaningful, honest and consistent manner.

Participants will explore their own personal narratives, aesthetics and psychology in image making. Through group presentations and discussions, creative exercises, shooting assignments, artist talks and portfolio reviews, photographers will leave the workshop encouraged and inspired to reach the next level of their creative potential. Additional topics will include, artist statements, long-term project development, editing portfolios and sequencing.

This course is strictly limited to 10 students maximum to allow ample time for individualized critique by the instructor.

Students will schedule one 20 minute, one-on-one meeting with Susan during the course of the class.
