Exposures - 8 weeks

Thursdays - July 4th to August 22nd

A "hands-on" workshop based on in-class discussion and interaction generated from the photography brought in by you with the goal to make you a better photographer.

Each week you bring in an image based on an assignment for discussion and conversation by the class.

The images have to be shot based on weekly assignments (no images from your files) and have to be on the specific topic or concept that I will give you the week before.

No image or software manipulation is allowed (images submitted have to be straight off the camera).

Then in the classroom, on the technical side, we'll bring up what aperture, shutter speed, focal length, ISO, white balance, etc. from the image data and as a class we'll discuss whether these "worked" based on the concept for the image. On the creative side we'll have a discussion about the "artistic" merits of each image (image concept, composition, image framing etc).

The benefit to participants:

  • An incentive to not only get you going out and taking pictures each week over the summer but to really think about the images you want to capture and bring into class.

  • Direct feedback about your images and consequently you'll start to learn what makes an image work and what doesn't and how to improve your photography.

  • Finally... implement the things you've learned into your own work from the discussion of not only your own images but those of the other participants.

This workshop is limited to 15 participants to make sure we have enough time to discuss all the images that get shown.

Each year we've had a full class so please let me know if you want a spot ASAP so that you can participate and learn from this year's experience.
