This two-day workshop focuses on exploring and realizing individual narratives through the power of the still image. Using metaphor, symbolism and personal stories participants will learn to articulate and refine their vision in any genre of the medium, whether that be landscapes, portraits, still life, nature, abstract, photojournalism, self-portrait or documentary. As photographers, our images are deeply rooted in personal emotion despite being self-created or found scenarios. The aim of this workshop is to guide photographers to become emotionally connected to each image they create, and to convey their vision in a meaningful, honest and consistent manner.
Participants will explore their own personal narratives, aesthetics and psychology in image making. Through practical demonstrations, creative exercises, group discussions, shooting assignments and portfolio reviews, photographers will leave the workshop encouraged and inspired to grow to the next level of their creative potential. Additional topics will include, long term project development, techniques, editing portfolios, marketing, publishing and exhibitions.
Join Susan for a rich exploration of the self, as we harness the power of photography to realize individual narratives.
