Friday, Saturday & Sunday, 2:00pm to 9:00pm
We will pursue a staged approach to photography in this workshop with the emphasis on experimentation rather than a finished work. Working in natural environments, we will construct compositions with objects integrated in the landscape. Objects might be found at the site or brought along. Natural objects or man-made materials. This approach is obviously related to the tradition of still life imagery, but here we will explore the possibilities of existing situations rather than a tabletop in the studio.
Since the emphasis is on experimentation, participants with a wide range of equipment are welcome–from professional grade cameras to cell phones. Object Lessons is appropriate for photographers who want to try this approach, but those who work primarily in other media might also find the experience valuable.
