It's been said that, "Every picture tells a story..." That said, what is the difference between a snapshot and a photograph with lasting impression? How can we make meaningful images — whether setting foot in our own backyards or an endless field of wild flowers at The Sundance Photographic Workshop? During the week of April 30 -May 4, we will photograph locations both inside and out, as well as our personal belongings, using the beautiful Utah natural light. Discover how we each experience a place in our own way and how that personal moment in time can evoke emotion and tell a story to others.
We will investigate what attracts us to a particular spot and compels us to stop, press the shutter release and capture that place and moment forever. How does that solitary moment translate to others? Upon reviewing your work, Jill will provide personalized assignments designed to teach you how to analyze the picture making process to create images that evoke a response and further thought from the viewer. Through daily critiques and shooting assignments, students will learn editing skills, which will advance their personal vision.
