Investigate light and color from a personal point of view.
Jan 18, 2021 - Jan 22, 2021
Workshop Fee: $1350
Class Size: 9 (max)
NOTE: This Course will be held in a live, Online Format using the Zoom Platform.
Class meets Daily from 10:30am-12:30pm EST
This renowned workshop is designed for both amateur and professional photographers who wish to strengthen their ability to see and work in color.
Through daily shooting assignments, critiques and discussions, participants acquire techniques to become more sensitive to light and its effects on color, composition, texture, pattern and design. While covering the use and quality of natural and artificial light, the main focus is on investigating color from a personal point of view. Arthur guides and inspires participants to help refine an individual style for creative fulfillment.
Utilizing Zoom as our platform, the workshop begins with a review of each participant’s images and a discussion of personal goals. Each day from 10:30am(EDT) to noon (ish) the group will convene for critiques, conversations, lectures and slideshows followed by an assignment for the day. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons Arthur will schedule 20 minute one-on-one sessions with each participant to discuss their work and goals in photography.
While this is an online class, the materials and information presented are the same as those Arthur utilizes in his in-person class. However, participants will have the advantage of photographing in their familiar surroundings. Throughout the week there will be a TA proficient in Zoom to assist in assignment, software and technical questions. Participants complete the week with a greater awareness of their strengths and an enhanced sensitivity to light and color.
Students will need a computer for image processing and editing since this is not based in a digital lab classroom.
Testimonials from Online Students:
“I just want to thank you for one of the best workshops in which I have had
the privilege of participating . This virtual classroom was as interactive and instructive as any ‘in person’ workshop I have experienced. Arthur, you were
a master of engaging each and everyone of us and I most appreciated the very personal attention you allotted to all. The instruction and critiques were invaluable. I look forward to your next workshop,..online or in person!”
– Aimee McCrory, Houston
“Many of us feel zoomed out, but Arthur changed all that in his workshop ”The Color of Light.” We sat in front a computer each day long enough for Arthur to give each of us very specific feedback, so we all learned from feedback on our own work and that of others, and to be inspired to go out and shoot, remembering what we were told. Inspired is the right word. I know I was not the only one to seek images and shoot for six hours each day and then come home and review it all. Arthur’s approach works on-line like no other. No wasted time, the best feedback I have ever had. I mean every word of that. Thank you for an extraordinary experience.”
– Judy Stein, Belfast, Maine
“Arthur Meyerson has taken his renowned The Color of Light workshop bravely into the online world via Zoom. I had the good fortune of attending his first online class, and I can say it doesn’t lack for any of the essentials. It’s all there. Daily shooting assignments, critiques and a strong sense of community, plus a private one on one time for each attendee to use as they wish. Thank you Arthur for making the experience come to life and help me to have a good reason again to pick up my camera and get out there and start shooting again!”
