CAMERA EYE SEMINAR I Photography Workshop
April 4 - May 23, 2012
An intensive workshop where students will explore photographic seeing and visual thinking. In a small class setting we will discuss photographs in technical, formal, and conceptual terms. The class is a critique based workshop and will focus on the development of each individual’s unique way of seeing and development of a consistent photographic style. We will look at photographers who masterfully used the elements of light and creative use of the frame. Guest artists and critics from our local arts community and beyond will be invited to discuss individual portfolios accompanied by field trips to artists’ studios, galleries, or museums. Each class consists of review and critique of student’s photographs, slide lecture and discussion, assignments for next class and/ or field trip option.
The course is open to anyone who seeks to develop their visual skills:
· beginners (any age) who have a good basic technical skill and seek to further their creative use of the camera
· those with existing portfolios interested in greater visual and conceptual sophistication
