To quote my buddy Ansel Adams, “The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.” Meaning… you must know how to compose an image before you take the leap into controlling the image!
Whether you want to learn how to take better images of your children or to see things from a new perspective, Through the Rose-Colored Lens will show you how to learn from the classical masters of fine art portraiture and adapt them to your own. We will learn the Elements of Art and Principles of Design and how they apply to our photography. We will also really get into the most important part of photography... light and how it affects every tiny little thing that graces our camera lenses.
This workshop is intended for budding photographers who want to learn how to build or strengthen the Fine Art side of their work.
This is not a technical workshop as point-and-shoots and digital SLRs both are welcome. However, you should have a well-charged and quality digital camera. Post-processing is not heavily addressed in this workshop, but questions can be answered. (Post-processing is addressed more in depth in a more advanced workshop.)
