I’m happily looking forward to teaching TURNING TOWARDS FALL: A PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPLORATION – my new weekend workshop offered through IS 183 Art School of the Berkshires. It will run Saturday, October 5th & Sunday, October 6th.
I’m also excited that this class will take place in Williamstown, MA at the Little Red School House – thus a chance to explore a new place and scene!
What does the shift in seasons look like from our personal perspective? How do outward elements like changes in the landscape and light affect our personal realm? The goal of this workshop is to fine-tune our photographic skills by learning to see in a poetic way. We will focus on ways of picturing mood and emotion as a response to our surroundings – be it a landscape or our own kitchen. We will work through exercises to explore how light, space, composition and even subtle change of perspective can convey an emotional, personal tone.
For inspiration and analysis of techniques, we will look at the work of photographers such as William Eggleston, Rebecca Norris Webb, Stephen Shore, Raymond Meeks, Palmer Davis, and Jitka Hanzlova among others who capture simple, often seemingly banal visual moments in a exceptionally personal and intimate way.
Students can expect to go outdoors during the workshop and create at least 10 images to form a mini-portfolio.
To register please contact IS 183 Art School of the Berkshires or contact me directly with any questions. Please hurry and register by the end of this week to ensure placement!
