- A shooting and critique class to hone your own unique way of working
During the weekend, we will examine your best pictures to date and discuss how they fail or or succeed in defining you as a photographer. The workshop will balance in the field shooting assignments with critiques and lectures back at the studio. Much of the first day will be spent shooting and processing. The following day, this work will be reviewed as a group along with your past portfolio.
Conversation and critique will touch upon aesthetic, technical, and professional issues. How do I make better prints? How do I learn to see better? How can I strategically get my work out there and start to build an audience.
Digital cameras are necessary to critique work after the field trip, however, students can choose to shoot film, as well.
