Photography: Discovering Your Personal Vision
This seminar is about exploring the art of photography and using the camera to find your individual expression. Although the use of adjustable digital cameras will be discussed, the emphasis will be on image making and creativity. We will look at contemporary fine art photographers for inspiration. Daily assignments and field trips will be given to stimulate your imagination. There will be an optional evening Door County photo shoot, to discover the magic of night photography. In the late afternoons and evenings, instruction will be given to those interested in using Photoshop to edit and enhance your images. Participants will use a pigmented ink jet printer to make professional enlargements of their work. This class is designed for both the beginner as well as those who have a more advanced understanding of their camera and Photoshop.
