Description

Sign-up for Photographing Magnificent Washington Field Class Workshop

5-6 October 2019 | $399.00

For Intermediate and Professional Photographers

Gain a critical foothold on how to analyze a scene as if you were on-assignment for a Geographic magazine. Exacting knowledge that is understood and expected between photographer and photo editor. An acquired skill set encompassing several factors that will teach the critical difference between looking and seeing, and how to develop a natural eye towards making expressive images.

For this Field Class event, we'll venture to where once grand structures stood tall and proud, where these derelict structures now lie in various states of photogenic decay. Observation in this sense is extraordinarily vital. It not only allows us to feel an intimate human connection with the people immediately before us but also begs us to think about where we are going next. Scouting with our eyes and cameras, we'll examine the layers organizing the elements of a vast space to create scale and graphic interest. Taking a closer look, we'll observe hundreds of vignettes, whereupon the vignette provides a closer and more intimate focus, serving to isolate visually revealing segments of the scene. in no time, you'll have a compelling collection of stunning and melancholy photographs, a storied collection that helps us hear these abandoned places speak. Now comes the tough part, which images do I send to the Geographic photo editor?

Let me show you.
