This special class is for those photographers who want to leave the grand landscapes behind, and train their eyes and cameras on the smaller, more intimate details of the world around us. This class uses both field and classroom presentations designed to hone and refine how to shoot evocative and compelling photos that highlight our personal connection to a subject, whether it’s something natural or man-made. Intimate and detailed doesn’t just mean small, tiny, or close-up macro photos. We will also explore how we use our vision to recognize and isolate important aspects of scenes and locations. Focus on the field sessions will be on taking a visual assessment of subjects and lighting conditions, looking for subtle subjects, and how best to photographically capture those scenes through composition, use of camera settings, and lens selection. Class presentations will cover topics like developing strong personal vision and incorporating detailed subject matter into a visual repertoire. We will also spend time learning how to work on images after-capture, including editing and post-processing using programs like Lightroom and Photoshop. The workshop concludes with a photo critique and review of the work that was created over the weekend.
