This workshop will help you develop and hone your ability to craft personal conceptual images with authentic emotional resonance. In the context of a supportive, collaborative community, we will spend the weekend assembling, lighting, and photographing mini-dioramas – no special skills necessary!

These constructed scenes may tell stories, suggest dreams, or reveal inner landscapes. Time will also be spent photographing live models in the studio lighting bays, as we learn to shape the lighting to express moods and emotions. We will look at old and new photographic masters for inspiration, analyzing their composition, color, and lighting strategies. Finally, as we strive to grow in our role as emotional messengers, we will discuss and explore chosen methods and techniques, based on both current brain research and time tested artistic practice, that are designed to push us out of our comfort zones to higher levels of creative engagement.

The measurable goal of the workshop will be for each participant to produce one or two digital photographs of their constructed mini-dioramas, as well as a small selection of studio portraits, to be shared in our closing presentation.
