In-Person Learning Class
Successful long-term projects are able to inform a subject without support of the written word, while effective images define the narrative. But first, the process begins with the desire to learn about the subject. In its final form, a well-conceived project consists of compelling, authentic images within a larger body of work that supports the subject.
Join Brad Temkin in this hands-on workshop designed to help photographers craft impactful projects that helps develop and shape a long-term photographic project, and produce a body of work that best reflects their visual and conceptual capabilities. Drawing upon his extensive experience, Brad will reveal the importance of truly connecting with your subject, and help students expand their skills in seeing, editing and problem solving, as well as formulate a personal viewpoint while addressing the social, environmental and visual concerns.
Class sessions will entail collaborative group critiques and constructive feedback that will help clarify student ideas and to help participants speak and write about their work. The course will include at least one field session, likely on Saturday morning, for practice. This will be a full-experience workshop that will incorporate work that has been done with new work to come, keeping in mind the final presentation and print interpretation.
Students are encouraged to bring a portfolio of prior work to class.
This course is strictly limited to 12 students.
