Focus On Your Talent
The topics explored will revolve around ideas and concepts, intent, intended outcomes, genres, techniques and their individual applications to a specific project. The review of images on a weekly basis will serve to emphasize the unity of each individual project, explorations of personal aesthetics, compositional principles, post-production techniques and presentation principles, including artist statements. Other topics will also address the creative principles behind any body of work, the many genres of photographic expressions as well as creative blocks suffered by all artists and the solutions to move beyond these. Participants should bring images in 300dpi jpg formats on a jump drive or cd for the first lecture, and be expected to produce images for the following segments, with a final assembly of photographs in a unified format at the end of the seminar.
