This one-week digital workshop is for students interested in exploring the rich humanistic traditions of fine art and street photography, while learning how to develop a personal style of shooting, using all sources of light, to create a stunning photographic portfolio.
Compelling fine art and documentary work demands a photographer's strong connection with his or her subject. In this course, the instructor teaches students how to make that connection and develop a personal style of shooting. Students will spend much of their time exploring and photographing the rich daily life of Spoleto, Italy, creating a portfolio of 15-20 images on a theme of their choice about Spoleto or the life of the city.
The instructor will discuss technique, intent, composition and the creative use of the camera and lens. Participants will receive daily feedback on their works-in-progress from the instructor and during peer group discussions. The final day of the workshop will culminate in an art exhibition.
