About the Workshop
In this workshop we plan to teach students to appreciate photography with more depth and develop an understanding of aesthetics in photography.
We plan to lightly discuss the technical aspects of photography, but primarily will concentrate on the forms of the photograph and elements of composition. Artistic use of different lenses will be discussed. Macro-photography will be discussed also.
The workshop will help fill the gap between shooting and pushing your artistic boundaries, while developing your eyes to see aesthetically pleasing compositions. The beauty of the desert will be one focus of our discussion.
Methods will include lectures, discussions, assignments, and critiques. The course will be somewhat flexible and open to feedback and requests throughout.
