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 examine the art of photography and explore how photographs attain meaning. Photographic elements that supply the work with the capacity to share a story are also discussed. Experimentation is encouraged as a means of pushing past the familiar and finding new ways of being expressive with photographs. Each day students focus on a specific photographic strategy and consider how subject matter and form create meaning.
