When we focus on the technical we miss something important. While technique and understanding are necessary for good photography they alone do not manifest our true creativity. There is something more to the creation of art than technique alone - good art comes from deep within and elicits an emotional response in the viewer.
Photography has long been a rational, literal effort, placing strong emphasis on clear communication, but these tools have an equally powerful ability to create art that results in subjective emotional experiences, not merely rational understanding... I can't be the only one who gets so hung up on the need to understand, that I impoverish myself of other experiences.
In this long weekend boot camp we will cover the major techniques that are the basis of photography:
And then we will stretch and break the rules. We will play, create, experiment and do whatever it takes to produce images with real feeling.
If you are looking for a great introduction to producing images that communicate mood, emotion, feeling then this long weekend boot camp is what you need.
If you are tired of your photographs not fulfilling your expectations - if they are lacking that powerful emotional pull that you felt when you were originally faced with subject- then this workshop will help you get that feeling into your images.
The workshop will begin on Friday evening with an introductory session on expanding your vision and will continue through Saturday and Sunday with some great instruction and guided exercises to develop your eye and increase your ability to reflect mood and emotion in your images
Class times are : Friday 7pm-10pm Approx
Saturday. : 10am- 5pm
