Our workshops centre around the art of seeing, identifying subjects we truly resonate with and communicating those feelings as photographic artists. Within this process, we will explore many techniques such as intentional camera movement (ICM) and multiple exposures; always seeking the potential of our cameras as a means of artistic expression.
Photographic art is a shared experience between artist and viewer. Illustrated talks on visual design and technique are followed by in-the-field art projects, and supported by daily review and evaluation sessions. In a safe and helpful environment that encourages creative risk-taking, we play the role of both artist and viewer; discussing the strengths and weaknesses of our artistic expression. This sharing is a dynamic and inspirational experience.
Our workshops conclude with individual consultations to discuss one’s photography going forward. Examples include personal vision and style, personal project development, and staying motivated, inspired, and engaged.
- have a working knowledge of shutter speed, aperture, ISO, depth of field and the relationship between each.
- have reasonable competency with their computer and photo editing software so they can select, organize and prepare photos for presentation.
What to Bring
After registration, a detailed list will be provided. The basics include:
- a laptop computer for daily processing of images. Computers and software should be up to date and reliable.
- to take full advantage of the photographic techniques taught, a camera with multiple exposure capability, including dark and light blend modes, is recommended. However, this is not a requirement. You may have a camera that takes multiple exposures of 2 or 3 or none at all; this is fine, there is still much to learn. Feel free to contact an instructor for clarification.
- recommended lenses include wide angle, mid range and telephoto zooms. Specialty lenses, such as fisheye and macro, are optional.
