Workshop Fee: $2295
Workshop Duration: 1-week (Monday-Friday)
Class Size: 12
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 Meyerson guides and inspires participants to help refine an individual style for creative fulfillment.
The workshop begins with a review of each participant’s images and a discussion of personal goals. In addition to addressing the aesthetics of color photography, Arthur leads group critiques and spends time with each participant addressing their photography. Daily assignments put classroom techniques into practice and take advantage of the stunning light and color of coastal Maine. Participants leave at the end of the week with a greater awareness of their strengths and an enhanced sensitivity to light and color.
Students are encouraged to bring a laptop for image processing and editing since this is not based in a digital lab classroom. Transportation is encouraged.
“Arthur is a WONDERFUL teacher and a great resource for color photographers.”
“Arthur’s workshop challenged us to look beyond the conventional, visual treatment of color in photography and explore in a deeper and more complex way. I am a stronger visual communicator for having taken this workshop.”
“Arthur Meyerson!! He’s a wonderful teacher generously sharing his knowledge and practical experiences which lead to vivid examples and instruction that are clear and concise – facilitating the learning process with positivity and encouragement!”
“Getting to know the mind of Arthur Meyerson in terms of what he looks for in an image was key. Arthur’s photographic style is very different from my own, however I clearly comprehend the concepts we discussed by seeing so many examples of his work. He illustrated these methods by not only showing us his own photography but by sharing his themed slideshows every evening to reinforce these ideas. In class, we had daily critiques of our work during which Arthur was so kind and encouraging. I now have AM in my head!”
