DATES: June 22 – 26, 2015
This is the second in a series of two workshops, starting with Amadou’s “The iPhone Photographer.” Students attending both workshops will receive a 20% discount on session two. Students may take either or both.
SKILL LEVEL: II – III
CONCEPT: Share your story through the art of narrative photography. The iPhone camera is a remarkably effective tool for creating a purposeful, cohesive body of work that reflects your personal interests. In this hands-on workshop, use the iPhone to explore the process of narrative photography, and discover how a collection of images can create a compelling story about the people, places or themes that speak to you as a photographer. Whether your passion is portraiture, landscape, still life or street scenes, the success of any photography project lies in identifying, planning and executing a strong thematic vision. With a series of in-class exercises, photography excursions and an overview of image-editing techniques, you will leave this workshop with the ability to create images that reveal a personal story.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use iPhone 4S or later running iOS 8, iPad 2 or later running iOS 8, Adobe Lightroom and select camera and editing apps.
ACTIVITIES: Students participate in photo excursions led by the instructor, daily assignments, discussions and image-editing sessions. Students have opportunities to have prints made of select images.
