This week Maine Media workshoppers immerse themselves in everything from portrait photography to landscapes and from fine art printing to screenwriting. Documentary photographer Sam Abell is on campus sharing 40 years of expertise, including three decades at National Geographic. Abell’s fully booked Moving Forward in Photography workshop is designed to help students answer two essential questions: "What is a well-lived photographic life, and how do I achieve it?" Working side by side with participants, Abell will help them edit existing portfolios, generate new work, and move careers forward to the next level. In The Intimate Portraitfine art photographer Joyce Tenneson will guide and inspire image makers to create elegant, insightful, and memorable portraits, as well as master ways to use available light. In The Color of Light, award-winning photographer Arthur Meyerson will demonstrate how to strengthen students’ sensitivity to the effects of light, color, composition, texture, and design through daily shooting assignments, critiques, and discussions. Workshops in alternative processes, film production, and camera basics are also in the mix. Thanks to Arri for bringing the Alexa and Almira on campus for our Camera Assistant Workshop this week.
