Aug 2, 2020 - Aug 8, 2020

Levels: Beginner, Intermediate,
Workshop Fee: $1395
Class Size: 14

For amateurs and professionals alike, the workshop begins with reviews of each photographer’s work. In addition, we will explore a series of topics: including the process of photographing spontaneously and intuitively; how to photograph people; and how to edit photographs so they reveal a story. We will also learn the principles of photographic vision, composition, and color. Through regular shooting assignments this workshop emphasizes the development of a unique, personal way of seeing. Together with learning a streamlined way of editing, you will bring your photography to a new level.

Participants should be prepared to bring twenty prints to class.
