There are many innovative approaches to storytelling and in this workshop you will learn to channel your inspiration and artistic expression while producing thoughtful imagery that clearly communicates your narrative.
Whether you are a fine art photographer conceptualizing an idea, a documentary photographer telling personal stories or a photographer of any stripe wanting to create a portfolio of images that distinctively come to life, the process can be daunting. This workshop will guide you in identifying and defining your goals while you create structure and conceptualize your storyline.
Through formal lectures on the visual narrative, editing and sequencing for impact, image critiques, and on location demonstrations, plus practical information and tips about specific shooting situations including working with your subjects to gain access, shooting in low-light and challenging lighting situations, you will learn to tell your compelling stories to a larger audience.
Attendees are encouraged to investigate and develop their passion in creating original content and the take away of this workshop is concretizing your vision.
