Workshop Fee: $795
Class Size: 12 (Max)
NOTE: This Course will be held in a live, online format using the Zoom Platform.
Class meets weekly on Tuesday from 1-3pm ET for eight sessions
This course is designed for those who have taken Exploring Photographic Styles I and are looking for further opportunity to deepen their work in one or more of the genres introduced in the first class. (NOTE: Experienced Students who have not taken the first unit of the course may inquire, see note below). It is an opportunity to build upon the inspiration and techniques introduced in EPS and work with photographer Sal Taylor Kydd on deepening that work and developing your portfolio.
Class will meet weekly with critique on the previous week’s work, the longer format providing a chance for review and refinement of technique. Discussions will cover photographic history, theory, and technical concerns.
-Spaces – photographing spaces, capturing the corner of a room, photographing a farmyard, backyard or porch.
-The Landscape – working with rural and urban landscapes, seascapes and horizons
-Objects – searching for the identity within an object, as defined by its space and surroundings, the still life.
-The Portrait – photographing people: friends, strangers, groups of people, as well as self- portraiture.
-The Emotional Photograph – producing a single, complex photograph, which expresses an emotion or idea.
NOTE: This class is an Advanced follow-up to Exploring Photographic Styles I Students registering for this course must have taken that class (at any point in time in the past). Advanced photographers who have not taken “Exploring Photographic Styles I” may also inquire with [email protected].
