Concept Photography
Creating Visionary Photographs
From Concept to Photographic Image

Students learn to take a concept, plan a photo shoot, and create the photograph depicting the concept. This process spans all types of photography, including wildlife, landscape, portraits, and art. The process includes developing a personal “style”, and using the equipment of the trade to accomplish the photographic vision of the photographer. Workshop includes exercises to help “see” the potential of a photographic opportunity, in-camera techniques, and digital darkroom techniques.

“Visualize Your Concept ~ Create the Photograph ~ Evoke an Emotion”

Students need to bring all their photographic equipment (camera body, lenses, filters, monopod / tripod, flashes, reflectors, shutter releases,etc.). It would be nice if they had a laptop computer to bring, but not necessary.

To Be Scheduled (Private, Semi-Private, or Class)

The Digital Darkroom gives photographers the opportunity to correct exposure, color, contrast, and other items in their photographs. In the days of film, these functions were completed for the photographer by their print lab. Modern technology changed this process, and how we work with our images. This class will go into the different software available for processing your photos, techniques to use, what to look for, and how to sort/file/store your photographic images. Lessons/classes are 1.5 to 2 hours.  All the details will be provided upon registration.
