How do you create a great picture? This workshop focuses on finding new inspiration and thinking outside the bounds of your previous practice. We look at the works of different photographers and analyze their visual vocabulary, composition, and intention. Participants then use elements of a particular photographer's style to guide their shooting. You can try to make similar pictures, or your interpretation can be more conceptual. Each student develops a personal project based on one of the styles we cover or an amalgamation of several styles. The course includes weekly class critiques of each student's images.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

In preparation for our first class, please prepare 3-5 images that you feel explore shadow imagery and ideas. They can be your images or images that inspire you. Each image should be 1500 pixels on the long edge and should be labeled with your name. Please number them in the order you would like to present them in class. Additional instructions for using WeTransfer to send your images to the instructor will be sent a few days before the start-date of the course. If you're not familiar with WeTransfer, it's a free image transfer website that we will use to send homework images each week.
