NOTE: This Course will be Held in an Online Format using the Zoom Platform.
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 Teaching Assistant 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.
