Online Learning Class via Zoom

How do we see and perceive the contemporary landscape beyond the marks that humanity has left on it? What can the landscape, in all its forms and iterations, teach us about ourselves? Under Brad Temkin’s expert guidance, we examine these questions in depth while learning to create pictures that are poetic and beautiful.

With the help of exercises, classroom discussions, portfolio reviews and critiques, as well as informal artist talks with professional landscape photographers, we gain a deeper understanding of craft and become better at articulating our ideas. We embrace pre-visualization and post-visualization approaches, but our overriding objective is to understand our own process and how we can best interpret it as a final presentation. Students will attain a solid comprehension and knowledge of the genre and they will gain insight into a vast collection of contemporary and vintage landscape projects.

The course will feature two or three guest appearances.

This course is strictly limited to 10 participants.
