Instructor: David Ulrich
Refining your workflow, process, and practice holds one of the keys to making successful photographs and communicating effectively through your images. Deepen your thought and discover your best practices. Many master photographers have written about the medium of photography, highlighting elements of their own process and serving to assist other photographers and creative people. Learn to find your own very unique and personal approach through experimenting with your own process and examining the workflow of others.
What helps? What serves to open your mind and stimulate your creativity? Which of the many tools available are most compatible with your creative aims? Through selected readings from historic and contemporary photographers, assignments, critique, and dynamic class discussion, learn to refine and expand your vision and your creative possibilities.
Open to beginning and advanced photographers alike. All styles of imagery and camera types are welcome, including cell phone camera users.
Class tales place on Zoom software. Please submit 6-8 jpg images, representative of your work, to the first class. Instructor will send Zoom link and instructions for submitting images through Dropbox or Google Drive prior to the first class.
