Join Arthur Meyerson for a compelling workshop weekend in Chicago. Designed to heighten your awareness of color and increase your ability to successfully capture distinctive moments with your camera.
The workshop begins on Friday with a review of each students’ images, followed by an introductory presentation by Arthur illustrating concepts, ideas and visual tools utilized in capturing color moments.
Saturday, we will put classroom techniques into practice, during morning and afternoon shooting sessions. Arthur will provide assignments designed to sensitize you to light, color, and composition.
Sunday will include individual and group critiques of the work from Friday and Saturday. The final lecture will address utilizing the color moment in the creation of photo projects and books.
