THE INTERPRETIVE LANDSCAPE – Quinton Gordon – Online – April 17th – May 15th, 2021
Wherever you live, urban or rural, there is a visual story to be told. This new five-week course challenges you to go beyond the obvious and deepen your understanding and appreciation of both where you live and how you see the world. This is an invitation to embark on a journey of creative discovery, accessed through the process of defining the purpose in your image-making.
This five-week, online workshop is designed to help photographers grow within the restrictions of the current limitations of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We tend to view limitations in a negative way when in fact limitations are an ideal opportunity for creative growth.
The current restrictions to our travel and movement mean that we have a chance to slow down, and to really examine how to make stronger photographs without the crutch of the new or exotic stimulation that travel affords us. The bonus is that as these restrictions lift and we can once again expand our horizons, we will make better more engaging images.
- Finding direction and voice in your photography
- Refining your camera and editing technique.
- Long term project development.
- How and why printing your work is so important.
