Do it with feeling! image boot camp (weekend workshop)

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. 


David DuChemin 



In this long weekend boot camp we will cover the major techniques that are the basis of photography:


Understanding light

Composition

Exposure 

Color theory 


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

Sunday 10am -4pm

      You would need to supply much more information before I could answer. Information such as your budget and the kind of things you like to shoot,

    Going to pass on this one. I'll miss most of it because of the French exam. I will sadly miss this one.

      I am sure will enjoy it but I am equally sure my weekend workshop will be much more likely to improve your photography ;)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
