In-Person Learning

Photography is an art form used to express observations or communicate a story. This workshop invites students to observe the world around them and discover the overlooked.

Designed for all levels of photographers, this course is less technical with emphasis on learning techniques and styles to express oneself through imagery. We will focus on elements of design and how choices of composition, light & shadow, color, black & white and other components inform the work. Students will draw on their own personal interests and histories while focusing on what is “seen” before the camera is brought to the eye.  Assignments guide students to reinterpret the world with a curious mind and through the camera’s lens. They will learn about storytelling through pictures and how patience plays a part in making the work. Presentations and exercises include street photography, abstract, new topographics and portraiture. By the end of the week, students will have created a visual time capsule of their interests and unique story-lines. This workshop will bring new awareness to what makes a good photograph and how to make one.

A Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera or digital mirrorless camera capable of manual control settings is highly recommended for this class. However, all types of cameras are welcome, including film cameras.
