DESCRIPTION


Whether an amateur, professional, or enthusiast, we share one important quality of photography, we are alone as we peer through the viewfinder. We frame and choose the instant alone, elevating a moment as the “best,” then offer it to a client, friend, or loved one and hope for a glimmer of understanding.

This workshop provides the rare opportunity for a small group of students to come together with internationally recognized, award-winning National Geographic contributing photographer Lynn Johnson to explore the creative process of photography.

Emphasis will be placed on the concept of “working with intention” with a focus on critical skills of photographic image-making, sensitivity to light,  design of the frame, and the power of the emotional moment. Most importantly, we will discuss how to get “unstuck” creatively so you can advance your personal style and build visually driven projects.

TOPICS

  • Exercises to help develop your creative eye
  • Breaking down the elements of storytelling
  • Discovering lyrical moments in our everyday
  • Advancing a passion project
Using Lynn’s and Elizabeth’s creative path in photography as a point of inspiration, the class will discover the keys to creating successful visual stories, as well as insight into the process used by National Geographic to evaluate, edit, and develop projects.

Combining lectures, hands-on creative assignments, and group critique, the mission of this class is to build a community of photographers who are curious, collaborative, and passionate. This 4-day workshop is designed to serve anyone who considers photography part of their life.
