Levels: Intermediate, Advanced,
Workshop Fee: $695
Class Size: 12

Note: This Course will be held in a live, online format using the Zoom Platform.
Class meets weekly on Tuesday from 10am-12pm ET for six sessions.

This course is designed for those who have taken Exploring Photographic Styles I and are looking for further opportunity to deepen their work and develop a consistent style, in one or more of the genres introduced in the first class.

It is an opportunity to build upon the inspiration and techniques introduced in EPS I and work with photographer Sal Taylor Kydd on deepening that work focusing on one genre in particular. In the first class, students will review the genres and decide where they would like to focus over the following weeks.

Class will meet weekly on Zoom with a critique of the previous week’s work. Discussions will cover photographic history, theory, and technical concerns.

Subjects covered:  

  • 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.

This class is designed for students who are advanced beginners, who have taken Exploring Photographic Styles I and are looking to develop a consistent voice in their photography.

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]
