The workshops will provide creative opportunities to develop your photographic skills and creativity in a range of subjects, with a focus on portraiture and landscape photography
Through fieldwork, exercises and image review and evaluation sessions – workshop participants will receive tuition and encouragement to develop:
• A critical appreciation of creative photography, understanding the play of light on the form of the land to create artistic photographic landscapes in scenic rural South Australia.
• An appreciation of creative portraiture and the role of light and form in creating artistic portraits in interesting field locations
• An appreciation of compositional elements within photography and how to best arrange them in the camera.
• Your understanding of lens choices for your photography – zooms vs prime lenses.
• An ability to produce creative photographs when the light isn’t good – low light and middle of the day photography.
• An ability to constructively evaluate your own and others’ photographic work.
• An understanding of your preferred photographic style and how to break out of your comfort zone to try something different.
The presenters aim is that by the end of the workshop you will be inspired by the creative possibilities provided by the workshop locations and subjects, and the skills you have learned or had refreshed during this workshop.
