Sharpen your vision as a photographer and enrich the content 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 significance through context. We will examine photographic elements that supply the work with the capacity to construct narrative. 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 specific photographic approaches and consider how subject matter and form create meaning.


Students use digital cameras, a digital workflow with Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, and digital printmaking techniques.
