New Workshop: Photographic Composition and Creative Vision
Photographic Composition and Creative Vision
I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching a new workshop at the Berkeley Art Works in October.
The workshop is sponsored by the Berkeley Arts Council and will be held at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg, WV. Pre-registration is required. Visit artworks.berkeleyartswv.org/workshops#pccv
Note: Second session is recommended but optional.
What is it that makes one picture of a particular subject ordinary while another image of the same subject is a work of art? This workshop will explore how composition, light and shadow, form and texture can work together to express something beyond merely recording a scene. The workshop will start with a discussion of the basic concepts of composition and then, through an analysis of some of my images, will demonstrate how those concepts are applied in practice from conceptualizing the image in the viewfinder to the final adjustments on the computer. Students who wish to move on to Part Two of the workshop will be given assignments to put the ideas and techniques into practice.
Saturday October 25, 1:30-4:30; 3 hrs)
Composition and Creative Vision Part Two
During the two week interval between part one and part two, Students will take their cameras out to practice the ideas and techniques discussed in Part One. They will bring in a selection of images for discussion and “gentle critique” during the second session.
Information for Students
Age: 16 yrs and up; Level of experience: beginner through intermediate.
Students are not required to have any specific equipment or computer capability but putting the concepts and techniques into practice requires a digital camera and a computer with at least basic image editing software. For those who need it, recommendations will be given for software to enable the various techniques.
Tuition: Parts 1 and 2 $90; Part 1 only $60 (Pre-Registration Required)
