Camera Eye's May workshop starts May 5. It's Seminar I and is an intensive workshop where students will explore photographic seeing and visual thinking. In a small class setting, the class will discuss photographs in technical, formal, and conceptual terms.
Description: The class is a critique-based workshop and will focus on the development of each individual's unique way of seeing and the development of a consistent photographic style. The class 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 student's photographs, slide lecture and discussion, assignments for next class, and / or a field trip option.
The course is open to anyone who seeks to develop their visual skills, including beginners of any age who have a good basic technical skill and seek to further their creative use of the camera as well as those with existing portfolios interested in greater visual and conceptual sophistication.
Class structure: Students will meet twice a week for 3 hours each. Cameras required. Critiques will involve either prints or projected images depending on the requirements of each student. Participants can work with digital images, slides, or prints.
Details: The class will be held May 5 to May 28 on Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturdays 1 to 4 p.m. at the Camera Eye Workshops in the 11 Miller Street Studios in Somerville. The instructor is Dana Mueller.
Maximum enrollment: 8
Materials and requirements: Basic camera skills preferred. Students must provide their own digital or film cameras and will be expected to generate images outside of class. Please note that it is not required to work with prints to take our seminar classes. Images will be viewed on-screen (digitally) or prints, which need to be provided by the student.
