In this fun and creative workshop, students will learn how to enhance their current portfolio or begin a new project by discovering fresh ways of creating unique and singular work. Friday evening will be spent discussing what is a portfolio and how to begin a new body of work or continue a deeper exploration of a current one. We will have an optional showing of a small selection of past work but the emphasis will be on new and future images and how to create the regular structure in each of our lives to produce work.
Saturday continues with an exploration of the creative process involving lots of writing and brainstorming in visual source books to see what concerns/ideas we are drawn to. We will discuss the threads that unite images to make a portfolio and most importantly, how to turn ideas into pictures – making the unseen seen through use of metaphor and symbol and the formal concerns of light and frame. Students then will go out and shoot in the beautiful light of late afternoon, evening and night.
We will continue the creative process on Sunday while each student works privately in a short one-on-one session with Cig to discuss their edits and ideas. Students will then present the start of their new projects to the group for feedback and discussion. Goals and deadlines will be set. Open to all levels of photographers seeking to expand their image-making skills.
