DATES: June 22 – 26, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: II – III
CONCEPT: Sharpen your vision as a photographer and enrich the context of your work by exploring the question, “What gives a photograph meaning?” In this workshop, students take a deeper look at the art of photography and explore how photographs attain meaning and the elements that supply them with the capacity to share a story. Learn with daily critiques, lectures and hands-on photography. Experimentation (and failure!) is encouraged as a means of pushing past the familiar and finding new ways of being expressive with our photographs. Each day we focus on a specific photographic strategy and consider how subject matter and form create meaning.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use digital photography and digital printmaking with Adobe Lightroom and/or Adobe Photoshop.
ACTIVITIES: We engage in independent shooting, daily one-on-one and group discussions, reviews, lectures and studio time for editing, developing and printing images.
