Camera Eye Workshops in Somerville has a varied and interesting lineup of workshops this summer and through the rest of the year that cover lighting, visual thinking, and advanced projects. There's even a workshop for high schoolers who want to build a pre-college portfolio. Scholarships are available. Here are the details:

Creative Lighting Workshop
This workshop will provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge about basic lighting techniques for any subject matter. Sessions include portrait photography (both in the studio and outdoors), basic commercial studio photography, and on-location shooting. The main focus of the class is to teach students to be versatile in their lighting techniques in any given situation with the most efficient skills and equipment, especially on location.

$300. Offered in June.

Camera Eye Seminar I
This is a month-long workshop where students will explore photographic seeing and visual thinking. In a small class setting, students will discuss photographs in technical, formal, and conceptual terms. The class is a critique-based workshop and will focus on the development of each individual’s unique way of seeing and development of a consistent photographic style. Students will look at photographers who masterfully used the elements of light and creative use of the frame. Guest artists and critics from the local arts community and beyond will be invited to discuss individual portfolios accompanied by field trips to artists’ studios, galleries, or museums. Each class consists of review and critique of students' photographs, slide lecture and discussion, assignments for next class, and / or field trips.

$380. Offered in June, July, August, October, November, and December.

Advanced Projects
This workshop is for more advanced photographers interested in long-term or extended projects. Emphasis is on developing narrative and sustained cohesiveness through strategies of approach, selection, sequencing, and editing of photographs for final presentation in a book/monograph, exhibition, or portfolio. Publish, prepare for exhibition, create a limited edition, or prepare a portfolio for graduate school. Critiques and field trips will be complemented by close examination of contemporary and classic fine art and documentary projects by major photographers.
