WHAT will we learn?
Over the course of the workshop you will learn the art of photo documentary and visual communication (click here for workshop itinerary). Your perspective will be pushed to new limits with captivating discussions about social change and the power/role you hold as a photographer, and through guided practice you will learn how to give and take constructive critique to improve your work. Through engaging lessons and hands-on challenges you will learn to master different kinds of natural light, how to take a perfect portrait, and how to capture the best landscapes. Finally, you will learn to produce photo essays that not only tell a story, but tell a powerful, meaningful story.
